South Africa: Eskom chairman resigns amid broken promises
Eskom lost another senior figure on 10 January as chairman Jabu Mabuza resigned, ostensibly because Eskom failed to live up to a promise made by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 11 December that there would be no load-shedding between 17 December and at least 13 January. The promise followed unprecedented stage 6 load-shedding, meaning 6GW of demand went unmet, which caused Ramaphosa to return early from a trip to Egypt.
