Eskom announces changes to the Executive Committee

Wednesday, 22 March 2017: The Interim Group Chief Executive of Eskom Mr


Matshela Koko has announced movements in the executive committee structure to
further strengthen the implementation of Eskoms corporate plan.

Mr Koko said, Our Design-to-cost (DTC) five-year strategic corporate plan


continues to gain momentum as we focus on delivering on our five priority projects.
These include increasing demand for electricity, reducing primary energy
expenses, implementing advance analytics to deliver savings, releasing
government guarantees and optimising our capital expenditure. I am therefore
pleased to announce that the Eskom Board has endorsed the secondment of Mr
Abram Masango, currently Group Executive for Group Capital to the Office of the
Group Chief Executive, with immediate effect.

In his new role, Mr Masango will assist Mr Anoj Singh, Group Chief Financial
Officer and the Interim Group Chief Executive Mr Matshela Koko with the
execution of the 2017/18 corporate plan.

Mr Masango has the appropriate skills needed to ensure focused execution, with
the determined leadership to manage the daunting work ahead, added Koko.

Mr Prish Govender, currently General Manager for Capital Assurance Integration


and Special Projects, will act as Group Executive for Group Capital with immediate
effect.

ENDS.
