Sikonathi Mantshantsha leaves Eskom at the end of his three-year fixed-term
Monday, 27 February 2023: Having joined Eskom on a fixed-term contract three
years ago, Sikonathi Mantshantsha will be leaving Eskom at the end of February

  1. Mantshantsha had agreed to join Eskom as Spokesperson to lead the Media
    Desk during a difficult period in which the organisation needed to restore 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
    loadshedding. 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.
    “Sikonathi has been the catalyst in Eskom improving transparency and frequency of
    information sharing, dealing with several difficult media engagements during his
    tenure,” said Eskom Interim Group Chief Executive Calib Cassim. “Eskom is grateful
    for his contribution to our organisation, and we wish him well during his next journey.”
    In the interim, Daphne Mokwena will lead the Media Desk team and act as Eskom
    Group Spokesperson with immediate effect while the recruitment process for a
    permanent spokesperson is underway.
    Mokwena is currently the Senior Manager for Retail Centre of Excellence and has
    been in the employ of Eskom for 21 years. Among others, Mokwena has served as
    the Gauteng Customer Services Senior Manager and Gauteng Distribution
    Spokesperson dealing with challenging issues such as Soweto debt.
