Nelson Mandela’s private secretary faces criticisms for praising Andre De Ruyter after his unexpected resignation

Zelda La Grange, the late Nelson Mandela’s private secretary, has been heavily chastised for praising Eskom ceo Andre De Ruyter after his unexpected resignation on Wednesday, 14 December.

The outspoken woman, who was formerly close to the former president, expressed her controversial opinions on Twitter.

Zelda La Grange lauded Eskom Group Chief Executive (GCCE) for his controversial tenure in a popular tweet.

She tweeted: “Ande de Ruyter, thank you for trying. You took a job no one wanted. Now you know why”.

On Wednesday, De Ruyter announced his resignation following months of severe public criticism. In December 2019, the former Nampak CEO joined the energy firm.

Surprisingly, Zelda had voiced her dissatisfaction with Eskom’s power shedding timetable only hours before.

She tweeted: “Make this make sense. Loadshedding 2hrs, 4hrs, 2hrs, 2hrs. So when the power is on, everything electrical gets plugged in, charged, and used, e.g., the severe strain on the grid…?”

Following Zelda’s controversial remark regarding Andre De Ruyter, she quickly became a hot topic on Twitter.

Here’s what Twitter users had to say:

@Born_of_Afrika: “There was a list of people who applied for this job. Nobody knows how De Ruyter was appointed by the corrupt Gordhan, as there were many more competent candidates than that guy. Stop lying! Have some shame, woman!”

@wittyphd: “White people stick together. No matter how ridiculous the nonsense”

@zibusiso431: “This woman is a disgrace to Mandela’s legacy! It’s disgusting how he even has a person like her working in his office. She has been showing her true colours for a while now on this app!”

@thabiso_jtee: “Don’t lie, who wouldn’t want R7mil per annum salary.”

@leonardmonar: “Stop lying, Zelda. There were people, in fact, competent individuals who wanted that job. Lying unprovoked because a white man failed in that post.”
