- Eskom has learnt with sadness the premature and untimely passing of Ms Nelisiwe Magubane, a former board member of Eskom.
“At Eskom we remember Ms Magubane as an outstanding, engaged and supportive board member who also played a significant role in bringing much-needed electricity industry experience to the 2018 Board and outstanding, clean administration of the country’s energy policy during her time in the government,” – the utility said.
Before joining the Eskom board, Ms Magubane was a Chief Director and later Director-General of the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE), where she distinguished herself as an outstanding administrator in the development and democratisation of the country’s electricity industry, particularly through the Integrated Resource Plan, the introduction of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme and extending electricity provision to the largest part of the population.
May her family, friends and relatives be comforted during these difficult times.
