This is to confirm that I am currently serving my resignation notice at @Eskom_SA, and that my last working day will be on 30 April 2019. I'd like thank Eskom for entrusting me with the huge responsibility of being the national spokesperson of the company over the past 5 years. pic.twitter.com/zvV12GEwCr

The outspoken spokesperson was known for using Twitter to update the country on the often bleak outlook of the power utility’s loadshedding schedules, as well as the goings on at struggling power stations Medupi and Kusile.
People responded to his resignation by wishing him well, and apologising for taking their frustrations out on him.
You did a sterling job under the most difficulties at the utility. Maybe you can take the spin doctor role at the department of agriculture; not much get done there.
