Cape Town – Eskom CEO Brian Molefe praised Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan as "the right man for the job" and said President Jacob Zuma is a “very nice old man”.

“He [Gordhan] is a man with immense integrity and is the right man for the job he is doing,” Molefe said on Wednesday, adding he holds Gordhan in very high regard. “That’s why we take requests from Treasury very seriously.”  

Asked whether he knows Zuma, Molefe said yes. “He is a very nice old man. He tells jokes and has a very interesting perspective on life," responded Molefe.
