Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe de Ruyter "must name names" in his corruption claims

Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe said says former Eskom CEO André de Ruyter "must name names" in his corruption claims.

He said that de Ruyter "must not throw a stone in a bush and hope an animal will come out" in his briefing at Parliament's portfolio committee on mineral resources and energy on Friday.

This is after Ex CEO André de Ruyter was reported to leave the position with immediate effect. Cassim was appointed as Eskom’s Chief Financial Officer in 2018.

Mantashe said he was looking forward to the appointment of an electricity minister who would be responsible for ending load shedding.

According to Eskom spokesperson, Sikonathi Mantshantsha, de Ruyter will be leaving at the end of February and Calib Cassim will lead Eskom until further notice.
