An Inter-Ministerial Committee has instructed the Eskom board to rescind the employment contract of CEO Brian Molefe, reported EWN.
This follows Molefe’s recent reappointment to the position of Eksom CEO after a short time as a Member of Parliament.
The ANC, DA, and EFF expressed their opposition to the reinstatement of Molefe and condemned statements made by him regarding his return to the company.
Eskom claimed that Molefe did not resign from the company and was on “unpaid leave”, a story which conflicted with several public documents.
Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown is expected to appoint an acting CEO from within the company in the next 48 hours and has instructed the Eskom board to propose potential candidates.
