Former Eskom CEO André de Ruyter has recently secured a new position at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. After leaving Eskom in February 2023, de Ruyter made headlines with his explosive interview on eNCA, where he exposed corruption and enrichment within the ANC and Eskom. In his book, “Truth to Power: My Three Years Inside Eskom,” de Ruyter further revealed details about corruption and incompetence at the power utility.
Due to concerns for his safety, de Ruyter decided to leave South Africa and has been residing in a secret location for the past few months. He received a warning that his life could be in danger because of his revelations related to corruption at Eskom. In December 2022, de Ruyter experienced a suspected poisoning attempt, which led to the discovery of high cyanide levels in his blood.
Despite these challenges, de Ruyter has received several interesting career opportunities, many of which are related to green energy. It has now been revealed that he has accepted a position at Yale University as a senior guest lecturer. He will be presenting a course on renewable energy and the green economy market, with a focus on Eskom’s Just Energy Transition (JET) vision to achieve “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050.
Yale University, founded in 1701, is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education in the United States. It is affiliated with numerous Nobel laureates, Fields Medalists, Abel Prize laureates, and Turing Award winners.
