CESA believes that Eskom is in good hands, CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY
Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) applauds the appointment of Department of Public Enterprises director-general Tshediso Matona, as the chief executive of Eskom. We believe that Matona brings with him fresh ideas to resuscitate the ailing State power utility and we are confident that he will come up with fresh strategies to navigate Eskom out of power outages and load shedding that has become the norm. Eskom requires both the financial and technical vigilance to manoeuver itself out of the operational deficiencies and dire financial position exacerbated by the lower tariffs approved by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa).CESA member firms are ready to work with Matona as trusted advisors and partners,” says CESA chief executive officer, Lefadi Makibinyane. Matona has been directly involved in providing oversight to Eskom and the other State-Owned Companies in the department’s portfolio for the past three years. Prior to that, Matona was the director-general for the Department of Trade and Industry (dtic) for five years.
