Brian Dames steps down from Eskom task team

Dec 19 2018 08:38

President Cyril Ramaphosa has agreed to let Brian Dames, the head of African Rainbow Energy and Power, step down form the newly appointed Eskom Sustainability Task Team.

In a media statement on Wednesday morning, the Presidency said that Dames had noted concerns raised regarding a "perceived conflict of interest relating to the scope of work and terms of reference of the Eskom Sustainability Task Team". 

"Based on these concerns, Mr Dames has requested to be released from the task team. President Ramaphosa has expressed his appreciation for Mr Dames’s willingness to serve and respects the judgment he has exercised."

African Rainbow Energy and Power, that the former Eskom CEO heads, was founded by Patrice Motsepe. Ramaphosa is married to Motsepe's sister Tshepo Motsepe.
