On third day of Eskom probe, Parly names new chair for public enterprises committee

The African National Congress (ANC) in Parliament on Friday announced the appointment of a new chairperson for the legislature’s public enterprises committee, on the third day of its probe into allegations of widespread impropriety at South Africa’s national power utility, Eskom. It said Lungi Mnganga-Gcabashe from the ANC would be the new chair, replacing acting chairperson Zukiswa Rantho. Rantho has taken a hard line on corruption and pushed Parliament for more resources for an inquiry into allegations of state capture at the power utility.
