The article cites BLSA chairman Jabu Mabuza’s speech at the meeting and draws direct quotes. The article highlights parts of Mr Mabuza’s speech noting the disappointment with the President’s cabinet reshuffle decision which is understood to be directly linked to the credit downgrades, “in other words, while the Cabinet reshuffle may have been politically necessary, its economic cost will be more unemployment and more poverty for black South Africans for more years.” Also included in the piece is the request for the President to dissolve the Eskom board, “we call on you, Mr President, to replace the entire current Eskom board and appoint a credible and strong chairperson to lead the board, and to appoint a new CEO for Eskom. The president should publicly set a deadline of 60 days to appoint the board,” Mr Mabuza said.
