Mabuza Hits out at Mboweni Over Eskom Privatisation Views

Deputy president David Mabuza stressed to the National Assembly on Tuesday afternoon that there were no plans by government to privatise the country’s beleaguered power utility, Eskom.

He was responding to questions in light of Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni’s tendency to give his personal view on what should be done with state entities that have been rocked with mismanagement, crippling debt and corruption.

For instance, during a briefing before his first national budget speech in February, Mboweni said he saw no point in government holding onto and supporting ailing entities when they could instead be released or closed down altogether.
