Eskom spokesperson, Sikonathi Mantshantsha will be leaving the embattled power utility at the end of February.
Mantshantsha, a former journalist, began working for Eskom on a fixed-term contract three years ago.
His departure comes just weeks after that of now-former CEO Andre de Ruyter.
Eskom said in a statement that Mantshantsha managed their media desk at a challenging period when the organisation needed to reestablish ” trust and credibility ” in its dealings with the public and stakeholders.
“Over the course of three years, Mantshantsha helped improve Eskom’s public image by driving honest and frank communication in the media domain on Eskom’s real position during a difficult period characterised by operating difficulties and increased load shedding,” they say.
“This has seen Eskom become more accountable, agile, and transparent in its external positioning while increasing its share of voice with regular executive team briefings to the public on key developments.”
Daphne Mokwena has been named acting spokesperson, effective immediately.
