Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says former Eskom acting board chairperson and CEO Jabu Mabuza and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan misled President Cyril Ramaphosa on loadshedding.
The ANC says state-owned enterprises will top the agenda of its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting and Lekgotla in Irene, outside Pretoria this weekend.
The ANC has called on the Eskom board to support the newly-appointed interim board chairperson Professor Malegapuru Makgoba in implementing a comprehensive turnaround strategy for the struggling power utility.
ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa has blamed state capture for some of Eskom’s problems.
The DA says the resignation of Eskom Chairperson Jabu Mabuza has created an opportunity for government to appoint an independent person at the power utility.
