Andre de Ruyter and Harvard University share their views on Eskom

His views are irrelevant now, he failed to back up his accusations in the proper platform when he was given a chance.
 
Ag nee, hy is n poephole... he's a best selling author, Rapport journalist and a Yale professor in renewable energy. Takes a special kind of genius to do all those things after failing at keeping the countries lights on. Oh and he's a hero to millions of guys from Boksburg... what a chopball
I agree bring back Molefe and Koko
 
Andre de Ruyter and Harvard University share their views on Eskom

Former Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter and The Growth Lab at Harvard University share their views on fixing Eskom – with striking similarities.
ADR is a proven incompetent fool with no proven history of successfully guiding organisations toward profitability and stability. He has no authority or credibility to express opinions on what the state should or should not do. Under ADR, Eskom saw its worst captain since its establishment.
 
He argues it is time for the state, as in the world’s most successful economies, to remove its fingers from the economic pie.

“There is no reason why the South African state should have such a large share in the economy,” he said.
Um, yes, of course there is. If they hand it over to the private sector, people will have to pay for what they use, including Soweto, Thembisa, Alex, Mamelodi, Atteridgeville and many municipalities that simply get billions in debt wiped out every year. The ANC can no longer use this as a ticket to win votes, that's why they want so much control.

They further proposed removing all preferential procurement requirements for the Renewable Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP).
Correct. Get rid of Lekker AA, BEE and Transformation!
 
Yes Swanson, Andre loves you from a distance.
I don't usually interact with alt accounts, but today I will make an exception, lucky you.

I don't care much about ADR, he is highly competent with an excellent track record, as is his current employer, and he has sorted himself out, because no longer has to subject himself to the incompetent bungling fools and thieving scoundrels that he had to report when he was at Eskom. Nor am I concerned about his feelings for me, for I too am sorted in that department, working remotely for a small global firm where competence and merit rather than skin colour dictate my salary, career prospects and job satisfaction.
I do respect the fact that he no longer has to live in a schithole country, and that at least his immediate family is close to him, I don't have that privilege, but I am working on it, and my efforts will be rewarded soon.
So one day when you finally wake up from your drunken stupor, after having quaffed the Johnnie Walker Blue that the ANC cadres have washed their dirty hands in, and discover that your sewage pipes are blocked with dried excrement due to no water nor electricity nor maintenance, and then decide to rather take a dump on the shallow grave in your garden where you buried your sons and daughters that died from cholera, listeriosis and tuberculosis, and wipe your backside with a mulberry leaf because you have no toilet paper, you may indeed realise the truth. You may also realise it when you are so hungry that the idea of eating your crimson beret makes you salivate with the same expectant pleasure as biting into a fine piece of thinly sliced biltong.
Then again, maybe not, you will, in all probability, just go back to your comatose state, and decompose slowly while flea-infested vultures pick the last slothful sinews off your rotting carcass, the bones which will soon vanish into the dust that is the land which you so covet, but lack the desire, knowledge, fortitude and work ethic to make productive, bear fruit and feed the nation.
 
No business will buy the failed SOEs with their criminal element, piss poor staff performance, and BEE targets uber alles.

So in your world the lights is on now. You and Fikile.
