Oomies write off De Ruyter’s ‘diary’

Former Eskom boss André de Ruyter’s tell-all book has our ministers hot under the collar. Both oomies Pravin and Gweezy were furious that De Ruyter snitched on them, revealing details of meetings they had with him behind closed doors. Uncle Pravin told parliament that the former Eskom boss lacked humility, while Uncle Gweezy said the book was not worth the paper it was written on.

“In the ‘novel’ written by De Ruyter, which is basically a diary, there is nothing novel about it — it’s a diary of meetings he has had. De Ruyter criticises me for identifying a 15,000MW gap in the ability of Eskom to supply energy. He says I lack understanding and so forth,” he fulminated.
