Johannesburg - There should be no denying that Eskom's performance has improved over the last 10 months, group executive for generation, Matshela Koko said on Wednesday.
He reacted to what he called recent reports about the absence of loadshedding being a result of luck instead of concerted efforts by Eskom to turn the situation around.
"This performance improvement is easily visible to the naked eye, but not to ideologues in whose eyes a state-owned company is incapable of delivering basic services as effectively as Eskom currently does. The improved performance is a result of strong leadership from the top and hard work by Eskom employees," said Koko.
"The assertion that it is not Eskom’s performance but rather the economic slowdown that has kept the lights on for the past 10 months is disputed. The facts speak for themselves."
