JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has called for Eskom’s executives to be sacked.
With rolling blackouts forecast until the end of the year, NUM says it's had enough and heads must roll.
"We think a reshuffle is needed there," said NUM President Joseph Montisetse.
The union isn't only gunning for Eskom executives.
It's also unhappy with its former general secretary, now Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe.
"We are not happy about the way he is handling issues of Eskom," Montisetse said.
"We had a pending meeting with him to discuss this but we want to put it specifically that we know he is not responsible for appointing the executives."
NUM is set to meet Mantashe next week but says it won't back down from its call for Eskom executives to be sacked.
