Eskom has confirmed that its new Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Andre de Ruyter, has indeed started his induction at the power utility and will start the official business from Monday next week.

Apart from dealing with the huge financial crisis at Eskom, the new CEO will have to deal with operational challenges and oversee the division of the power utility into three separate entities.

De Ruyter will also have to come up with a plan to keep the lights on and deal with the ageing infrastructure at the power utility.
