Eskom yesterday said it had agreed to "amicably" part ways with its chief executive, who was suspended pending an inquiry into operations at the power utility. Tshediso Matona and three other senior members were suspended in March."It is expressly noted that no misconduct or wrongdoing is alleged by Eskom against Mr Matona," the utility said.The Labour Court recently dismissed an attempt by Matona to have his suspension lifted, saying the matter should be settled through mediation.In a letter to staff and contractors, Matona said: "It is with mixed feelings as I take this route, as I know how important Eskom and its people are to our country as a whole."..
