numANA reports that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Free State region on Thursday welcomed the removal or transfer of Eskom general manager in the province, Lindi Mthombeni.  

The union has been pleading with the power utility for months to remove Mthombeni, saying that workers had lost trust in her and alleging that she never delivered as the general manager.  "We are shocked that she is now acting on a higher position within Eskom, while she did not help us in Free State when she was still the general manager.  We hope Eskom group CEO Phakamani Hadebe will monitor her fully based on our grievances," Isaac Mtshotwana, NUM deputy regional secretary said in a statement.  No comment has been received from Eskom about the position now occupied by Mthombeni or the division she was promoted to.
