Eskom executives, managers to undergo lifestyle, conflict of interest audits – interim CEO

Power utility Eskom will implement independent audits on its leadership, with members of the executive committee, as well as divisional executives and senior general managers to undergo regular independent lifestyle and conflict of interest audits, interim CEO Sean Maritz announced on Thursday. Speaking at the last leg of public hearings into Eskom’s application for tariff increases, in Gauteng, he said the company’s executive committee had resolved to take bold action to shift the organisation’s reputation towards positive change.     “In so doing, we have adopted a five-path plan to rebuild a robust governance process and preserve our core value of integrity. This includes strengthening our general internal ethics and fraud framework where we have reviewed and approved our ethics and fraud management policy,” he said.
