Calib Cassim Discusses Eskom CEO and CFO Roles

Eskom’s acting CEO, Calib Cassim, has refrained from disclosing any information about the appointment of a permanent CEO, nearly seven months after André de Ruyter’s departure. Cassim also mentioned that he has not applied for the CEO position and is in discussions regarding the extension of his contract as Eskom’s CFO.

Cassim made these statements during an Eskom briefing on the state of the grid and the outlook for the summer season. Reports suggest that the chances of appointing a permanent Eskom CEO before Cassim’s contract expires in December are slim, partly due to issues involving the preferred candidate.

Cassim declined to comment further on the matter during the briefing, stating that it is being addressed, and the board will notify the public once a selection is made. Regarding his potential contract extension as CFO, Cassim mentioned that discussions are ongoing to determine whether it makes sense for him to continue in the role.

Cassim took on the role of interim group Eskom CEO in February following De Ruyter’s departure, which was mutually agreed upon by the board. De Ruyter left the utility after making controversial statements during a media interview and facing criticism from Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Monday, 10 July 2023: Stage 4 loadshedding is being implemented until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to increased demand. On Wednesday, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 until 05:00, followed by Stage 2 loadshedding from 05:00 to 14:00.

There will be a daily implementation of this pattern until further notice. A new update will be published if any significant changes are made.

As of now, 14 252MW of generating capacity has been damaged by breakdowns, while 4 118MW of generating capacity has been out of service for planned maintenance.

As of today, Duvha, Hendrina, Kendal, Kriel, Matimba and Medupi power stations have each reactivated a generating unit.

The Arnot and Tutuka power stations each had a generation unit out of service due to a breakdown during the same period.

Tutuka Power Station’s current capacity constraints are due to the delay in resuming two generating units. In order to restore service to the generating units, Eskom teams are working around the clock.

Members of the public are being encouraged to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, and we want to thank the people who do heed the call. During the period between 17:00 and 21:00, please turn off your geysers and pool pumps as this reduces demand, alleviates pressure on the power system, and contributes to fewer stages of load-shedding.
