There’s actually a very strong risk of load shedding coming up at the end of August and into the start of September… The operational issues have not been fixed…

Peter Attard Montalto, Head of Capital Markets Research - Intellidex

Public Enterprise Minister Pravin Gordhan has appointed Jabu Mabuza as Eskom’s acting executive chairperson and acting CEO of Eskom Holdings.

Mabuza takes over due to the resignation of Phakamani Hadebe.

Wednesday is Hadebe’s last day at Eskom.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Peter Attard Montalto, Head of Capital Markets Research at Intellidex.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and scroll down for more quotes from it).

It’s not positive having the same person as chairperson and CEO... they should be separate roles…

Peter Attard Montalto, Head of Capital Markets Research - Intellidex
