READ IN FULL: Eskom affidavits on reinstatement of Brian Molefe
Embattled Eskom CEO Brian Molefe was considered to be on "unpaid leave" after his initial resignation from the power utility in November last year‚ according to court papers filed on Monday.
Molefe‚ who was made an ANC MP after he resigned from the power utility in November last year‚ returned to his old job at Megawatt Park in Johannesburg last week‚ amid a dispute in which he believed he was entitled to a payment of more than R30-million after his resignation.
Molefe and Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown both agree he never resigned from Eskom in a set of answering affidavits filed in response to the DA's application which seeks to have Molefe removed from the position.
