Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan has announced that he has informed the Eskom Annual General Meeting (AGM) of his decision to appoint Jabu Mabuza as the interim executive chair for Eskom and acting CEO of Eskom Holdings.

Mabuza will assume the duty as acting group CEO for Eskom due to the resignation of Phakamani Hadebe who leaves July 31, citing “unimaginable demands” of the job as having a negative impact on his health.

Within the three month period during which Mabuza will be the executive chair and acting CEO, the Eskom board will conclude the process of identifying a suitable candidate to become the next Eskom group CEO, according to Gordhan’s statement.

Mr Jabu Mabuza said, “I have made myself available to serve as the Interim Executive Chairman and Acting Group Chief Executive of Eskom with a good appreciation of the importance of leadership stability in the company right now as we look at the implementation of a sustainable operational and financial turnaround plan.”
