President Jacob Zuma has responded to the chaos over the reappointment of Brian Molefe as executive of Eskom by setting up an inter-ministerial committee.
Inter-ministerial task team over Eskom “Ordeal” :
- Justice Minister Michael Masutha
- Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba,
- Energy Minister MmamolokoKubayi
- Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown
Justice Minister Michael Masutha will lead the task team, which is going to look into resolving a matter of this nature in future.
Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown also announced on Thursday an investigation into Eskom, stretching to 2007, when load shedding began.
The intervention of the President came after Brown said she would launch her own investigation into Eskom.
According to Natasha Mazzane of the DA, the power utility was in crisis because Brown had failed in her oversight responsibilities.
The full-scale inquiry into Brown’s reappointment of Molefe would get to the bottom of the issues, she added.
