The board of Eskom is expected to be “reconstituted and restructured” following a meeting with the Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Jamnadas Gordhan.
The State-owned electricity company has been facing serious and recurring challenges ever since CEO André de Ruyter took over the reins.
The Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) explained that the term of the Eskom board had expired in 2021 and that a review of its work has been underway.
“The Minister has been in constant engagement with the board on various matters such as procurement, recruitment of former and experienced Eskom employees, and combating fraud and corruption.
“On Tuesday, the Minister informed the board that a review has been finalized and that the board will soon be reconstituted and restructured.
“The board members will be informed of the outcome of the process,” the department stated.
The DPE said a new board for the entity will be revealed soon.
