Brian Molefe’s attempt to fight his dismissal from Eskom in the Labour Court was not heard on Monday as expected because neither the power utility nor Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has filed answering affidavits.
Molefe's controversial return to Eskom was cut short when the minister announced that his appointment as CEO was being rescinded.
Molefe has approached the court claiming that his removal was unlawful, adding that politics and misconduct were to blame for his axing.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) also approached the High Court in Pretoria in a bid to block Molefe from performing duties at the parastatal.
The DA's case is due to be heard on Tuesday.
Last month it emerged how Molefe helped the Guptas grab a mine.
