Rumours are wrong, says Pravin Gordhan — Eskom will be unbundled
Trade unions argue the proposed split will not solve Eskom’s governance and debt problems
Public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan says the unbundling of Eskom is on track — contrary to public speculation.
Opposition political parties last week claimed the ANC had been cowed into silence and inaction by its alliance partners, Cosatu and the SA Communist Party, on the issue of unbundling Eskom. This, the parties said, explained why President Cyril Ramaphosa did not mention unbundling in his state of the nation address last week.
