JOHANNESBURG - Former City Power board chairperson Frank Chikane says it’s unfortunate that his administration leaves while City Power is under a dark cloud.

Chikane announced at the City of Johannesburg’s 2015/2016 annual general meeting that his contract and that of other board members will not be renewed and that a new board has been appointed.

Last month, Mayor Herman Mashaba instituted a forensic investigation into alleged tender irregularities amounting to billions of rands at the power utility.

Chikane says he regrets that his board leaves City Power under these circumstances.

Chikane says over the past five years City Power has embarked on a number of campaigns to curb corruption which is starting to yield results.

The former board chairman has thanked shareholders and the power utility for their support during his tenure.
