In a statement on Friday, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), slammed Eskom chairperson and acting CEO Jabu Mabuza, calling him “clueless” in the wake of renewed load shedding, which will now be heading into the weekend.
They called for his “immediate removal”, alleging he was incompetent, underqualified and “admittedly clueless”. At a media briefing yesterday to explain why load shedding has returned and what Eskom plans to do about it, Mabuza responded to a question on whether he is the right person for his job by explaining that he didn’t apply for it and was there due to the decisions of President Cyril Ramaphosa and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.
“Am I the right person? I would have applied for the job if I had the qualifications and I wanted it.
