Racism allegations against Eskom boss Andre de Ruyter rubbished by advocate

The report from Senior Counsel Ishmael Semenya regarding his investigation into the allegations of racism at Eskom has found that there was no substance to the allegations, the power utility announced on Wednesday.

"Use of the race card without foundation, merit or substance has no place at Eskom," the company stated.

Semenya was called on to investigate allegations brought by former Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) Solly Tshitangano (pictured) against Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter.

The race card... It's the last defense to hide ineptitude and kleptocracy.
This country and its accusations of racism have become such a cliche.

Ironic that the board & everyone drops everything to investigate nonsense accusations instead of dropping everything to investigate the open theft of taxpayer money where Eskom/our electricity supply is being pulled down the toilet.

But I guess that old saying holds: if all you have is a hammer, everything starts looking like a nail..
 
Can one file a crimen injuria charge for a racism claim, or is it only against someone that has made a racist statement? Or a case of defamation?
Just wondering if there are consequences for accusing others of racism?
 
Great win against all the goons with future "race card" aspirations.

Yes you can file a charge. Some cops recently got convicted on false racism charges. It's up to de Ruyter if he wants to pursue criminal charges.
