PPF welcomes Lamberti’s resignation

The Progressive Professionals Forum (PPF) says the resignation of Mark Lamberti from the Eskom board was long overdue.

PPF says it criticised the appointment of Lamberti describing it as contrary to clean governance.

The High Court in Pretoria had found that Lamberti had wrongfully impaired the dignity of a highly-qualified and experienced senior black female staff member.

PPF says it will continue to mobilise all progressive professionals to ensure that those who harbour racial and sexist tendencies find no place in the corporate world.

“If you have a board member such as Mr Lamberti who may use his statements calling somebody an employment equity beneficiary or an equity appointment, then it goes to prove what mind set of that particular board would be. In January, when he was appointed, we called for his resignation and we welcome the court outcome and welcome his resignation from Eskom,” says PPF deputy president, Kashif Wicomb.
