DA pushing ahead with bill aimed at splitting Eskom into two entities
The DA ’s Natasha Mazzone published a notice in the Government Gazette, showing the intention by the party to introduce the Ismo Bill in Parliament.
“The Ismo Bill is to be introduced during the second half of 2019,” the notice said. The summary of the bill was already published in February, after DA leader Mmusi Maimane announced in October that it would be coming, and that it was aimed at dismantling Eskom’s monopoly.
Ramaphosa at the time said the government would embark on a process of establishing three separate entities - generation, transmission and distribution - under Eskom Holdings.
In her notice for the explanatory summary of the bill, Mazzone said it could not be denied that Eskom had effectively become a “zombie enterprise that was overinflated, and riddled with corruption”.Read more: IOL News
