Corruption at Eskom is still widespread according to André de Ruyter

No surprises there.

If there's one skill our 'fellow comrades' have mastered it's the ability to pilfer without conscience or consequence!

It's a crying shame!

They've robbed and deprived the nation of a stable power utility and by extension, have basically ensured the economy contracts, with little to zero chance of future growth!

It's actually a bloody disgrace! Those found guilty should be charged with treason!
 
I do not care about corruption being widespread. What I do care about is, if you knew it is widespread, what have you done to stop it, save the taxpayer money and get rid of the debt and growing the utility?

If it is still widespread after 6 months of taking office, you obviously have not done a lot to stop it and seems you may be using it to justify your own failures, in which case I believe corruption will be there to stay.

You might be over estimating what you can do in 6 months.

I do, but perhaps because this is government. In the private sector, without your hands being tied, the rot could be cut in hours, if not minutes. Due to this it is clear that the corruption is here to stay and the taxpayer will continue to fund it.
 
I don't get everyone's hate for this guy. It seems as if he is getting little to no support from his management, and being a state entity, no easy way to get rid of them.
He's not there to make friends - he took the job knowing what was ins store for him and i admire that immensely but the corruption is literally causing businesses to close and taking food of people's table.

Tough and difficult decisions need to be made; including laying of charges for anything illegal and dismissals.

I have just one word for you:

Unions
 
I am sure there is a ton of "hardball" options to root out corruption, but if these networks are so pervasive, trying to force too hard might end in sabotage. Imagine a coordinated attack on generators by the corrupt going out with a scorched earth policy.

Would be great if he reported on any progress made toward ridding the company of corruption. These patronage networks have supporters at Eskom. Find them and fire them. Preferably with arrests too. Any management found to be obstructive must be fired as that would be insurbordination. The other day an article said Eskom continues to work with companies found corrupt in the past. Why?
