Greenpeace activists chained themselves to the entrance of Eskom "to confront Eskom over bad choices and demand new management"

Greenpeace activists chained themselves on Tuesday to the entrance of Megawatt Park, Eskom's headquarters in Johannesburg.

"Eskom is under new management," the protesters announced in a banner dropped by a team of climbers, said Greenpeace spokeswoman Fiona Musana.

The banner carried the logos of Greenpeace, groundWork and Earthlife Africa -- organisations which campaign for environmental protection, clean air and renewable energy.

The action was taken "to confront Eskom over bad choices and demand new management", said Musana.

"We are having a brief conversation with Eskom management," she said.

Eskom spokeswoman Hilary Joffe was not immediately available for comment.
