Shock removal of Eskom chief

Opposition to Eskom’s shocking decision to remove interim chief executive Johnny Dladla intensified on Monday, with the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the Black Business Council (BBC) calling for his immediate reinstatement.

The union said Dladla was removed after he publicly stated that Eskom would recoup money that was unlawfully paid to McKinsey and Trillian totaling R1billion and R564million, respectively. “The sins of the current Exco team and acting group chief executive Johnny Dladla was to declare the McKinsey contract unlawful, invalid and void.

The NUM support Exco on its decision to recover funds unlawfully paid to McKinsey and Trillian,” said Paris Mashego, NUM Energy Sector Co-ordinator, adding that Eskom should recover the funds from McKinsey and Trillian with immediate effect. “Secondly, Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown must intervene immediately.” The BBC, a business grouping widely regarded as being close to the government, slammed the decision, with chairperson Sello Rasethaba describing it as shocking and disappointing.
