Another high-profile Eskom resignation follows State of Capture report

Mark Pamensky‚ the Eskom director most directly linked to the Gupta family‚ has resigned from the board‚ Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown said on Tuesday evening.

Pamensky‚ who is also a director of telecoms company Blue Label as well as of the Gupta-owned Oakbay Resources‚ was among those subpoenaed by former public protector Thuli Madonsela for the State of Capture report.

Pamensky’s resignation follows that of Eskom CE Brian Molefe on Friday‚ who is to step down on January 1.

The report found that the Eskom board was “improperly appointed” and did not conform to ethical standards as the directors or their immediate family members have multiple relationships with the Gupta family.

Madonsela also criticised Brown for not acting to rectify this once the conflicts were pointed out in the media‚ reports Business Day.
