NUM welcomes the resignation of Mr Zola Tsotsi

posted on

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) welcomes the resignation of the former Eskom Board Chairperson Zola Tsotsi.

As the NUM, we hope his voluntary resignation will bring stability at Eskom. 

"We welcome the resignation by the former Eskom Board Chairperson Zola Tsotsi. It has been long overdue. The sooner we get stability in so far the executive are concerned the better so that the oversight which is the Eskom board can focus on overseeing," said Frans Baleni, NUM General Secretary.

The NUM still reiterates its initial position to push for a "Save Eskom Campaign". Part of the campaign will be to ensure that the voices of the workers are embraced in any turn-around strategy by the government. We believe that it will be a grave mistake for workers not to be consulted in generating the improvement of the parastatal. 

So long, as the workers are pushed to the margins and their experiences and knowledge is relegated to the gutter as is the case currently nothing sustainable will emerge out of any intervention.Thus, we urge the Public Enterprise Minister Lynne Brown to break the tradition of corporate tyranny by consulting with workers at Eskom in order to get a sense of problems and solutions thereof.
