Minister Brown Expressed Condolences to the Yende Family

Minister Brown also expressed condolences following the death of Eskom employee Thembisile Yende.

Yende’s body was discovered at the utility’s Springs substation after having been reportedly missing for two weeks.

“Allow me to express our deepest condolences, on behalf of government, to the family of Thembisile Yende. I have asked my Department to ensure that Eskom provides the appropriate support to the Yende family and the police investigation,” said Minister Brown.


In a statement on Tuesday, Eskom said it was saddened by the events. Eskom is now working closely with the South African Police Service (SAPS) to establish the circumstances under which Yende passed away.

“We convey our deepest condolences to the Yende family, who have lost their loved one and join the family in mourning,” Eskom’s Group Executive for Human Resources Elsie Pule said.

“When we heard that Thembi had gone missing, we worked closely with the family and the SAPS. We are saddened by her tragic death. Eskom will continue to support the family with counselling and in any other way possible,” said Pule.

A post-mortem will be conducted to determine the cause and time of death.
