The Eskom board of directors has decided to initiate an investigation into allegations of racism against CEO André de Ruyter.

The power utility’s suspended Chief Procurement Officer, Solly Tshitangano, has accused De Ruyter of purging Black suppliers and appointing more white individuals to senior positions within Eskom.

Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha says the board will appoint an independent senior counsel to conduct the investigation

Mantshantsha says the board unanimously and unequivocally stands against racism and sexism, and for transformation and employment equity.

He adds that simultaneously, however, the board has instructed the executive to promote a high-performance culture to enable the critically important turnaround at Eskom to be delivered as soon as possible.
