JOHANNESBURG - Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) has lifted Eskom’s suspension from the organisation.

Eskom's membership was shelved in September last year in the wake of serious allegations of state capture and corruption.

BLSA says it’s now restored the utility's membership after careful consideration of the actions of the new Eskom board.

Spokesperson Thebe Mabanga said: “The decision to lift Eskom’s suspension, taken by the BLSA board, is in recognition of the progress made by Eskom’s new board appointed, overseeing the adverts of all the key executives of the utility and taking credible action against officials implicated in wrongdoing.”
