Cyril Ramaphosa’s advisors that he recently appointed to solve Eskom’s mess with constructive advice are slowly but surely dropping out. His appointed team is shrinking with a second member of the committee who has decided to resign.

The task team is intended to advise the ANC government on what needs to be done to save the bankrupt power supply provider from total collapse.

Sy Gourrah, the general manager of Actom Power Systems, confirmed she’s resigned from the team as she is not in a position to handle the workload. Experts say the fact that Eskom is one of Actom Power Systems’ biggest clients can be the main reason why she has stepped aside.

Earlier, a former head of Eskom, shortly after his appointment to the task team, decided not to go ahead and submitted his resignation.

That leaves the task team with only six members to draft the report and submit it to government for consideration.
