Caller asks Eusebius: Why can't we give new Eskom CEO the benefit of the doubt?
The appointment of the new Eskom CEO has been met with mixed reactions.
Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan announced on Monday that Andre de Ruyter will be taking over the reins from Phakamani Hadebe who resigned earlier this year.
Callers on the Eusebius McKasier Show debated whether it was a right move to appoint De Ruyter or not.
