I have to congratulate the ANC with the appointment of Andre de Ruyter as Eskom CEO. Not because I think he can actually rescue Eskom out of its troubles, but because he is white and I think Afrikaans. You see, having appointed Andre sends a clear message that the ANC is prepared to look past skin color and try and do the right thing - for all South Africans.

Andre could actually be pink and I wouldn't give a hoot as long as he can assist in stabilising Eskom - as it will have a disastrous impact on ALL South Africans if the state-owned enterprise sinks like the titanic. 

Politicians in South Africa are so easy to play the race card, but we as normal South Africans are so tired hearing race talk. I would LOVE to know what percentage of the population would just like to work together and "get on with it". 

Hopefully Andre is given the freedom to "get on with it".
