BLSA condemns reappointm­ent


BUSINESS Leadership South Africa (BLSA) has “unequivoca­lly condemned” the reappointm­ent of Brian Molefe as chief executive of Eskom, calling for the power utility’s board to be sacked. BLSA chairperso­n Jabu Mabuza said five separate reports, including the Public Protector’s State of Capture report, had found prima facie evidence of serious malfeasanc­e at Eskom during Molefe’s tenure there. Mabuza called on the government to use its powers as Eskom’s shareholde­r to reverse this decision immediatel­y and to replace the existing board. “This reappointm­ent makes a mockery of Mr Molefe’s own words about leaving Eskom in the interest of the country and good governance,” Mabuza said.
