Geoffrey Qhena, Chief Executive Officer of The Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa Limited (IDC) said that IDC will not sell stakes in the listed companies to raise funds to help in Eskom Holdings SOC Limited's cash crunch.

The investments in listed companies provide money to IDC to fund new businesses. According to Barclays, government can raise upto ZAR 86 billion by selling stakes in 10 listed companies. IDC hold stakes in 8 of the 10 companies which are Sasol Ltd. (JSE:SOL), Kumba Iron Ore Ltd. (JSE:KIO), ArcelorMittal South Africa Limited (JSE:ACL), Sappi Limited (JSE:SAP), Life Healthcare Group Holdings Limited (JSE:LHC), Hulamin Limited (JSE:HLM), Merafe Resources Limited (JSE:MRF) and BHP Billiton plc (LSE:BLT). "A complete disposal is out of the picture. Out of the eight we are taking out nothing because they are key in the IDC’s life…. We have not been approached by anyone," Geoffrey Qhena said.
