Oscar Wilde said “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Once again, a member of the old guard had been chosen to pull Eskom out of its woes. As Johnny Steenhuisen from the DA rightly said, the BEE-enforced elite was not able to run Denel, SAA and the largest albatross of them all, Eskom. Competence has nothing to do with colour. Competence comes in black and white and kudu’s to Ramapanther and Gordhan who understand that.
Welcome to Andre de Ruyter as the new CEO of Eskom. May the force be with you and may the prince of darkness as Eskom is called in the townships, meet his match. And if you are a praying person, pray for this man, he surely is going to need it. And for all the ladies out there, just to lighten the mood a bit, he is not bad looking either!
