Trustee Elections

The Eskom Pension and Provident Fund (the “EPPF” or “Fund”) is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of 14 Board Members, seven of whom must be elected by members and pensioners of the Fund. 

As communicated by the Independent Electoral Officer on Monday, 6 April 2020, the Trustee Election results are final. Below is the final list of elected representatives:


Izak David Du Plessis

Bargaining unit members

Helen Diatile (NUM)

Molibudi Anah Makgopa (NUMSA)

Deon Jenkins (Solidarity)

Non-bargaining unit members

The election of these seven trustees completes the first part of the appointment process for our new Board of Trustees who will assume office on 1 June 2020 and serve the best interests of all members.

The process for the appointment of the seven nominated Trustees (employer-appointed) is underway and we anticipate that an announcement in this regard will be made no later than 31 May 2020. 

The appointment of the remaining seven Trustees will complete the appointment of the Board of Trustees who will serve the Fund for the next three years until 31 May 2023.
