Featuring Kyle Cowan. Facilitator: Ebrahim Fakir

Investigative journalist Kyle Cowan released Sabotage: Eskom under Siege (2022). Based on exclusive interviews with De Ruyter, Oberholzer and other key figures, the book is a story of conspiracy and fraud at South Africa’s ailing power utility, uncovering the power struggles that threaten the country’s survival. Political commentator Ebrahim Fakir, the Director of Programmes at the Auwal Socio-Economic Research Institute (ASRI), will head up this conversation with Cowan about the assault on South Africa’s power grid. Not even Eskom loadshedding will disrupt Time of the Writer from proceeding with this discussion.
