Eskom has 14 days to provide the Public Enterprises portfolio committee with the necessary documents to conduct it's inquiry into Brian Molefe's reappointment as Chief Executive Officer.
The parastal's board and Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown faced MPs on Tuesday.
While Brown said her department would conduct its own probe, Eskom board chairperson Ben Ngubane insists Molefe’s reappointment as CEO followed due process and that the board acted on the best legal advice.
Brown said she supported Molefe’s return to the parastatal last week as long as it was legal, believing his reinstatement would be more valuable to the company than paying him R30 million.
EWN reporter Lindsay Dentlinger was there.
Both sides of the room, opposition parties and the ruling ANC not buying this story, not buying the process that the board says was followed to reinstate Brian Molefe and has now taken the decision to launch its own inquiry. They are giving Eskom 14 days to provide them with documents that they need to conduct their inquiry.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
Essentially documents that relate to how the board came about on this decision to reinstate Molefe, also documents that would show that he was in fact as they claim on unpaid leave and that he had originally requested early retirement and had not officially resigned from the entity,— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
