South Africa will overhaul the board of national power utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. after the country’s worst-ever power cuts dented confidence in the government’s ability to resolve a 14-year energy crisis. 

Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan informed the company’s management on Tuesday that a review has been finalized and the board will be “reconstituted and restructured,” his department said in a statement.
