eskomBusinessLive reports that another Eskom veteran has resigned from the embattled state-owned power utility.  

Eskom announced on Monday that its group executive for generation, Thava Govender, had resigned and would leave the organisation at the end of October.  Govender, who is also acting group executive for risk and sustainability, has worked for Eskom for 27 years.  His departure is the latest in a string of resignations from the utility in 2018 — including the resignation of his predecessor as head of generation and former acting CEO Matshela Koko.  Govender’s resignation comes a week after Johnny Dladla, CEO of Eskom Rotek Industries, a subsidiary of the organisation, tendered his resignation.  He will also leave Eskom at the end of October.  Dladla, who served as interim group CEO of Eskom between June and October 2017, had been with the organisation for 23 years.  Govender's exit also comes as the utility is experiencing coal supply shortages at 10 out of its 15 base load power stations and when load shedding remains a risk.
