Eskom CEO, Andre de Ruyter says that they’ve fired hundreds of staff who had cost the utility billions through their breach of fiduciary duties. The power utility and the Special Investigating Unit (SIU), have already lodged a civil claim to recover R 3.8 billion from former Eskom officials for allowing the power utility to suffer losses as funds were funneled to the Gupta family, on their watch. Commenting on the matter, De Ruyter says that civil claims are better to pursue than criminal cases, as the “wheels of the criminal justice system” turn slowly.
