You can't use state capture as a scapegoat for load shedding - Nehawu
The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) is calling for Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan to resign.
This follows the resignation by Eskom board chairperson Jabu Mabuza.
Speaking to Nickolaus Bauer, Nehawu spokesperson Khaya Xaba says they believe Eskom will not improve with Gordhan at the helm.
We have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he is not the right man for the job. We need someone who prioritises the prosperity of this country and small businesses.Khaya Xaba, National Spokesperson - Nehawu
In the next three months, there will be nothing to save.Khaya Xaba, National Spokesperson - Nehawu
They are using state capture as a scapegoat you can't necessarily blame state capture for load shedding. Some of the problems affecting Eskom has long been in the running including the non-service of machinery and proper governance.Khaya Xaba, National Spokesperson - Nehawu
Meanwhile, Wits School of Governance lecturer Dr Ivor Sarakinsky says President Cyril Ramaphosa needs Gordhan to keep the line in terms of cleaning state-owned enterprises.
He is in a tough position, he has to make a difficult choice and when you have a big decision like this you end up not doing anything.Dr Ivor Sarakinsky, Lecturer - Wits School of Governance
