Eskom CEO refutes claims that Abram Masango resigned due to harassment

Eskom CEO Phakamani Hadebe has refuted claims that senior executive Abram Masango resigned from the utility due to harassment and victimisation.

Masango has stepped down after twenty years as a senior executive. He faces allegations relating to the Kusela power station.

Masango's lawyers say a notice of suspension issued to him on Friday, shows the power utility's desperation to remove him from the organisation.

Hadebe has denied the claims.

I had a very good relationship with Mr Masango. I indicated that at my disposal I had information that demanded because of his position and the responsibility that he has, that he take a precautionary suspension.

I have never done what has been indicated, it is not in my personality.

Meanwhile National Treasury has released the final report on the investigation of various allegations at Eskom and Transnet.

Commenting on the report, Hadebe says there are ongoing investigations.

It is about 1 000 people who have been investigated in one way or the other, of which about 27 have exited and there are about 200 or so that have been suspended. So we are doing the best we could. We should still do more when it comes to consequence management.
