Eskom destroying documents linked to Molefe saga, claims DA

The DA says it has reliably learnt that Eskom is in the process of destroying key documents and correspondence relating to the Brian Molefe saga.

DA MP Natasha Mazzone explains that a trusted informant at the power utility tipped the party off.

We have a very good source at Eskom who phoned us this morning to let us know that documents were being destroyed relating to the Brian Molefe saga.

On Tuesday, Brown and the Eskom board were grilled by Parliament’s Portfolio Committee about Molefe’s reinstatement, after it emerged that Molefe didn’t resign but was instead on unpaid leave.

Mazzone says she believes that there is still a great deal of impropriety which has yet to be exposed at Eskom.

It's in the public interest that we get to the bottom of this Brian Molefe saga as soon as possible.

We have every reason to be terribly concerned about what is happening at Eskom.
