Makwana will also retain his position on the board of Nedbank.

"I haven't held any commercial interests in an IPP since 2019. I sold them all in 2019 after 10 years, which felt like the right time to do it. I sold all those interests," Makwana said.

"Until Friday, I was an independent non-executive director of one of the country's IPP's and as soon as I got the call, I stepped down immediately."
