Can Brian Molefe do at Eskom what he did at Transnet?

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has appointed Transnet CEO Brian Molefe as the acting Eskom CEO.

Molefe has been at the head of Transnet since 2011 and was the Public Investment Corporation CEO from 2003 to 2010.

He’s known for his strong management style and hefty experience, but how much can Molefe achieve in the limited medium run?

Listen to the audio (scroll down) for our interview of Peter Attard Montalto, Emerging Markets Economist at Nomura plc London.

Eskom is a very different beast from Transnet. It’s a much, much bigger challenge for him.
