Eskom has suspended its chief procurement officer, Solly Tshitangano, and will be instituting disciplinary action against him, following allegations of poor performance over the last year. Andre de Ruyter, Eskom’s group chief executive officer, confirmed to News24 that Tshitangano had been suspended because of his failure to turn around the company’s procurement division. He was tasked with saving Eskom 4% of its annual spend of R140-billion on goods and services, but has been unable to do so.
