eskomFin24 reports that the Department of Public Enterprises announced on Wednesday that Professor Malegapuru William Makgoba had been appointed interim chairperson of Eskom, following the shock resignation of Jabu Mabuza last week.  

The government was also in the process of putting in place a new board in line with President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement on Friday, the department added in a statement.  The President announced a plan of introducing a reconfigured Eskom Board with the appropriate mix of electricity industry, engineering and corporate governance experience.  Makgoba joined the Eskom board in 2018 and is the independent lead director.  He is well known as a public health advocate and academic, and was formerly the vice-chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal.  Most recently, he was behind the Makgoba report into the Life Esidimeni disaster, having presided over the investigation.
