Professor Malegapuru Makgoba

Professor Malegapuru Makgoba has been appointed Eskom interim chairperson. This follows the resignation of Jabu Mabuza last week. Makgoba, a scientist, joined the Eskom board as a non-executive director in 2018, following the resignation of Jabu Mabuza last week. In a statement, the Public Enterprises Department says his appointment is consistent with government's plan to appoint a board with an appropriate mix of industry and engineering experience. Earlier on this morning I spoke to Professor Makgoba and started off by asking him why he accepted the position as Eskom’s interim chairperson
