Dear SACANCHAM Members

Full details of the event which is due to take place on Wednesday 1st March from 4 to 5pm SAST are provided below and you are encouraged to share the details with those within your networks.
Join us on the Zoom platform to gain insights from the outgoing CEO on his time at Eskom when SA is in the grip of its most severe energy crisis.
André de Ruyter is the outgoing group chief executive of Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned electricity company. After three years in the position he resigned in December 2022, saying he was ‘dependent on the support of the broader political economy and that support is absolutely critical to enabling the success of Eskom going forward.’ Before joining Eskom, he was CEO of Nampak and a senior executive at Sasol. See his bio here.
Ann Bernstein, CDE’s executive director will be in conversation with André. The discussion will focus on the ‘politics of power’ at a time when South Africa is in the grip of its most severe electricity crisis.
