Weekend Witness - - News -

PHAKAMANI Hadebe has an­nounced his sud­den res­ig­na­tion as Eskom’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, the power util­ity con­firmed to Fin24. Hadebe will leave Eskom at the end of July 2019.

“It is no se­cret that this role comes with unimag­in­able de­mands which have un­for­tu­nately had a neg­a­tive im­pact on my health. In the best in­ter­ests of Eskom and my fam­ily, I have there­fore de­cided to step down,” said Hadebe in a state­ment is­sued by Eskom yes­ter­day evening.

“I am hum­bled and grate­ful to have con­trib­uted to­wards the sta­bil­ity for an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is crit­i­cal for our econ­omy. I am par­tic­u­larly grate­ful to the board, the Exco, and all our em­ploy­ees for their re­silience and sup­port ...”

Ac­cord­ing to Eskom chair­per­son Jabu Mabuza, Hadebe has been in­stru­men­tal in driv­ing sta­bil­ity at Eskom dur­ing a very chal­leng­ing pe­riod at the or­gan­i­sa­tion. “We have learnt to de­pend on his re­silience to drive the kind of trans­for­ma­tion that South Africa ex­pects of our or­gan­i­sa­tion. Ap­pre­ci­at­ing the toll that this takes on an in­di­vid­ual, we have had to, with re­gret, ac­cept his de­ci­sion,” said Mabuza. — Fin24.
