High-ranking Eskom executive linked to sabotage at power stations

Not sure why the Police Minister is talking to the press about this before an arrest is made, it's not like he has to go public or pressure anyone else to initiate an investigation, he's in charge of that. Strange. Guess it moves the conversation away from other ministers for a bit.
 
Police link high-level Eskom exec to power station sabotage

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has identified a high-ranking Eskom executive that they believe could be central to the sabotage plaguing the power utility's generation fleet, City Press reports.

The executive has been the subject of discussions between security cluster ministers over serious allegations made against them.
De Ruyter obvs, given the propaganda bs coming out of the woodwork.

Cadre's gotta eat, and he was sabotaging that.

Cos he has to build a narrative that he somehow isn't fscking useless.
 
How much effect does this lady minister in the presidency have?
Is she just a figurehead, or can she institute action?
Or does she have to submit proposals in triplicate and await bureaucrats decisions?
 
This is good news. Hope its true and SAPS can prove it. Would think someone / people on operational management side, with the influence or contacts to have it filtered down and acted upon. Not necessarily a suited person.

The WHY and where is the money coming from to do though?? Interesting

To be honest it reads like De Ruyter's intelligence, why would you be communicating on WhatsApp about sabotaging Eskom?

Because they are idiots and really believe the encrypted story, forgetting that it is easy to read WhatsApps on a computer and send the data where you will

I really don't know, it just sounds too good to be true, I think the media might just be laying it on a little bit too thick because if we have this incriminating communication then it effectively means there is no reason why this guy is still not arrested.
 
It is alleged that the person in question strategically appointed hand-picked engineers to initiate generation unit breakdowns at certain power stations.
That tells me that the peophol of interest is in a position to decide or can manipulate who gets appointed as an engineer at power stations.

Start with the head of HR and expand the list of cadre poephols (interesting or not) from there.

A high-level executive? We all know who serves on the Executive Committee, that is public, but what does high-level imply?
It means that this is no ordinary cadre, nay it is a highly esteemed cadre, that can strike up a conversation with Don Cele:

“My guys heard the executive talking to me and said this was someone of high interest because an individual in such a high-ranking position must know more than that person was telling us,” Cele reportedly told the paper.

Leaked WhatsApp messages between the individual and the forensic auditor indicate that they had previously successfully engineered breakdowns at Eskom power stations.

The messages also reveal the executive actively discussing strategies for sabotaging power stations.
So a forensic auditor is also in on the sabotage, or was this forensic auditor attempting to get the cadre to admit to acts of sabotage?

You are assuming a cadre is involved

Does eSkommel still employ any non-cadres that you feel would be sufficiently high and interesting to bring into this conversation?

And what makes you think that there might be cadres that are not corrupt?

According to a City Press report, the executive has top-secret security clearance.
Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, the minister in the Presidency that oversees the State Security Agency (SSA), has subsequently asked for an investigation into the vetting process done for the executive and why he was given high-level security clearance.
Only cadres get a "top-secret" (or "high-level" whatever that means) security clearance.
