Pravin Gordhan said it was critical to get Eskom and other state entities back on a firm footing as the era of relying on bailouts ‘needs to disappear’.  
The police minister said the circumstances making it difficult to resolve Senzo Meyiwa’s murder ‘was a story that maybe we will tell one day’.
Some of his tasks would be ‘to interrogate Eskom’s debt and various proposals to resolve its burden, as well as engage investors with the Eskom executive’.
Depending on the outcome of investigations by line departments, ‘further action may arise, including disciplinary action, recovery of monies and criminal charges’.
Msunduzi was placed under administration in April by KwaZulu-Natal’s cooperative governance and traditional affairs department (Cogta).
Eskom recently received a R59bn bailout from government, but is expected to announce more ‘record losses’ in the year ending March 2019.
