Eskom's De Ruyter to fully cooperate with racism probe against him
Andre de Ruyter said that an investigation was welcome as it would get to the bottom of the allegations that go beyond alleged racism.
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter said that he would cooperate fully with the investigation into allegations that he was guilty of racism but said that he would not tolerate corruption.
De Ruyter has been speaking at Megawatt Park, giving details on the state of Eskom.
He is accused of sidelining black suppliers.
The CEO faces an internal Eskom investigation as well as an inquiry by Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa).
De Ruyter said that an investigation was welcome as it would get to the bottom of the allegations that go beyond alleged racism.
"Racism and sexism have absolutely no place at Eskom, so that is a categorical statement that my management team and I fully support. Equally, we cannot accept under-performance and we cannot accept corruption."
