State institutions receiving attention: Mantashe

Troubled state institutions like Eskom, the NPA, and the SABC are receiving attention, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Monday.

"The ANC noted with serious concern the developments in a number of institutions including Eskom, the SABC, the Hawks, the NPA and Ipid [Independent Police Investigative Directorate], among others," he told journalists in Johannesburg after the party's national executive committee (NEC) met over the weekend.

"The NEC is confident that these matters are receiving the necessary and urgent attention from ANC deployees in government."

Mantashe would not discuss problems plaguing Eskom and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

The power utility had been struggling to keep the lights on for months. Several executives, including chief executive Tshediso Matona, were recently suspended by its board.

"We don't discuss operational details of NPA, Eskom, in the NEC. If we did you would ask if we were qualified to do so," Mantashe said.

"There are interventions to turn the state institutions around."
