S.Africa wants Godsell back as Eskom chairman: report

By on November 13, 2009

South Africa would like Bobby Godsell to reconsider his resignation as chairman for troubled utility Eskom , the Public Enterprises Minister Barbara Hogan told 702 radio in a live interview.

Godsell resigned on Monday after he said the government failed to support the board’s bid to oust the company’s chief executive Jacob Maroga after the two clashed over issues of how to run Eskom, the state-owned firm which is struggling to keep South Africa’s lights on.

The resignation of Maroga was finally confirmed on Thursday.

“There was never any pressure that Bobby Godsell should ever leave … We would be very grateful if he would reconsider his position,” she told the radio station, and added she would be speaking to the former chairman over the weekend.

“We would like normality to be restored at Eskom and if that means bringing Bobby Godsell back, yes, we would like that.”
