Tshediso Matona, former Eskom CEO said that Eskom will continue load-shedding because it represents a part of its lifeblood.

He said the facility utility are faced with issues even before his arrival as Eskom’s CEO.

“We knew the issues , the issues had been well established and what was required were solutions, what were the solutions to those problems and to not enquire into them.”

 

They had been known, they had been there for years prior to my arrival. I did say that we were forecasting that load-shedding would occur for a period to come, I couldn’t say five years because I was optimistic that we would resolve the load-shedding problem earlier than five years,” he said.
