Eskom to issue statement on Maroga

2009-11-11 09:47

The board of Eskom was expected to release a statement to clarify

the fate of CEO Jacob Maroga today, The Star newspaper reported.

“Please be patient with us,” acting chairperson Mpho Makwana told

the daily.

The board, whose chairperson Bobby Godsell has resigned, was first

expected to release a statement on Tuesday, amid reports that Maroga was

prevented from entering his office.

But newspaper said the statement would now be released today

and that a media briefing would be called before the end of the week.

“We will communicate when we are able to say something meaningful,”

said Makwana.

Several newspapers quoted senior employees as saying Makwana took

steps to prevent Maroga from returning to his office.

“I think these matters will be considered a little later,” said

Public Enterprises Minister Barbara Hogan.

The board apparently maintains that Maroga’s resignation on October

28 remains valid, despite Maroga sending Hogan a letter on Monday to say that he

was still the CEO of the electricity utility.
