Another suspended Eskom exec quits

Jun 01 2015 12:22

Cape Town - Another senior executive has decided to part ways with Eskom after he was suspended ahead of a deep dive inquiry to look into issues plaguing the power utility.

Eskom and its suspended group executive for group capital, Dan Marokane, have mutually agreed to part ways on an amicable basis, Eskom said in a statement on Monday.

On May 18 suspended Eskom board member and Chief Executive Tshediso Matona have also agreed to part ways, also on an amicable basis.

The executives were suspended on March 12 because the Eskom management allegedly provided unreliable and inconsistent information to the war room, the high-level task team headed by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and which was formed to deal with the power crisis.

Eskom said on Monday it is "expressly noted that no misconduct or wrongdoing is alleged by Eskom against Mr Marokane".

"Mr Marokane believes that the agreement to separate is in the best interests of both parties; to allow the board to pursue its plans for the company under the current leadership and for him to seek new career opportunities," Eskom explained.

"With the separation, the inquiry initiated by the board into the state of affairs at Eskom will continue as planned, and Mr Marokane’s suspension falls away," said Eskom. 

"The separation is also by no means in anticipation of the outcome of the inquiry, the latter whose objective is to enable the organisation to deal with its challenges.

Marokane joined Eskom in January 2010 and held executive leadership roles in primary energy, Eskom enterprises, group commercial and technology and recently group capital, where he drove Eskom’s build programme and the attainment of the first synchronisation of Medupi unit 6.
