NUM wants axing of Eskom board’s chair

2015-04-30 16:57

THE National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has called on Public Enterprise Minister Lynne Brown to fire Eskom board chairperson Zola Tsotsi. Fin24 reported on Sunday (22/03) that board members had met with Brown to discuss axing Tsotsi.

The board allegedly rejected proposals for an inquiry instituted by Tsotsi, according to a report in Business Day. The report said the board was not happy with the way the inquiry came about and believed Pres. Jacob Zuma had played a role in it. The board tabled a resolution of no confidence in Tsotsi on Friday (20/03).

The NUM said it felt vindicated, because it objected to the reappointment of Tsotsi when he was appointed. The NUM said in a statement that it had previously sent a warning that the state of corporate governance was degenerating at Eskom.
