NUMSA Gives Eskom Deadline on CEO Racism Probe

Written by on 10 April, 2021

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) is concerned that Eskom’s own probe into the alleged misconduct of its CEO, André de Ruyter, will be mere window-dressing.

This follows Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts announced that it won’t go ahead with the investigations after Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan said the power utility’s board instituted its own inquiry.

Numsa says this decision is an attempt to sweep the allegations under the carpet.

The committee has given Eskom 90 days to complete its investigations.

The union’s Phakamile Hlubi-Majola says the timing is suspicious as they had previously ignored the allegations for 14 months.
