Black Business Council says Eskom CEO musical chairs doesn’t inspire confidence

The Black Business Council (BBC) said on Monday that it was concerned by the sudden change of leadership at State-owned power utility Eskom, saying that government must give the enterprise some space and not meddle in its affairs. This comes after Eskom last week appointed its chief information officer and group executive for information technology, Sean Maritz, as its interim group chief executive in a “rotational basis” of the executive role. He joined the executive committee in June last year after 28 years at Eskom.
