Was thinking the same thing. Get a list of all people with evidence of corruption against them or any other formal misgiving. Get an independent labor law specialist to review all the cases and put them into 3 different piles. Those who can be immediately dismissed due to severe transgressions, those who can possibly be dismissed after formal grievance process is followed, and those who require more evidence or investigations in order to start dismissal proceedings.

If they dismiss people in accordance with the labor laws, the unions can't get upset and strike because they would then be showing they support illegal activities, and the people who are dismissed are likely spread evenly over the organization, so you aren't putting a single division at risk by getting rid of them.

The best thing about this is you are getting rid of the bad apples and leaving the good ones. If you offer retrenchment packages, it is likely the good ones will take them to get away from the rotten apples, leaving you with nothing but a basket of rot.
Too much logic. You also make it sound like a challenge to the unions. Never, ever underestimate the stupidity.

Because we hate Eskom and we love anyone who says bad things about them.
... and we're off. Bait set and the slugger comes out.

Ever occurred to you perhaps we don't hate Eskom, rather the people that have turned it into what it has become. Try normalize that however you want with you normal tricks, it's not normal. 1,000 - 3,000 - 10,000, once we got to a thousand it had passed Lalaland ridiculousness ito any form of accountability.

I'm putting it to you, anybody trying to defend or normalize this, is part of the problem.

In most of the previous Eskom articles dealing with their financial problems, like this one from last year.
Well, that's some pretty pisspoor reporting in the current article. You don't assume your readers have read the other articles you have written on a piece. If you want to reference stats from somewhere else, you at the very least link to them. Pathetic excuse for journalism.

So 10 000 new jobs? This is our central energy. Leaving it in the hands of the corrupt seems a really bad idea. Their corruption is causing massive externalized damage to the other 50+ million South Africans.
Why would they care? They don't. They just want to overstuff their coffers as quickly as possible and then hightail it out of here to a place without an extradition treaty, and there are many, then live large on their ill gotten gains. The stuff fairy tales are made of.

give them a second chance ...

:rolleyes:
Yeah, why not. Don't let them go leaving a half baked job behind. Don't half do a job, do it thoroughly or don't do it at all.
They've done all the hard yards, they may as well complete it now and leave the country without power and in anarchy.

It probably started out as an initiative to boost small business by outsourcing some of the work.
Erm, that wou;d be a corrupt and highly irregular thing to do, no ways it can ever be justified or supported.
