Durban - Former Eskom acting chief executive officer Matshela Koko said he did not buy the idea that the state-owned power utility’s implementation of stage 6 load shedding was caused by wet coal.
“Wet coal is an excuse,” Koko told Independent Media on Wednesday.
He said it was “very” clear that the leadership of Eskom, at board and executive levels was, “very” inexperienced.
“There is a big disconnect between engineers and the leadership,” he said.
Koko insisted that South Africans were suffering long hours of darkness because of the lack of maintenance at the country’s power stations.
