Financial Mail's Sikonathi Mantshantsha says Ben Ngubane's resignation is a sign that "the dominoes are starting to fall."

Ben Ngubane's sudden resignation as chairperson of the Eskom board is not the end of the allegations against him and other Eskom officials, says the Financial Mail's Sikonathi Mantshantsha.

Mantshantsha says Parliament can still subpoena Ngubane to explain his role in corruption allegations, until criminal investigations are launched.

Ngubane's resignation is a sign that "the dominoes are starting to fall", Mantshantsha explains.

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown announced Ngubane's resignation as both non-executive director and chairperson of the parastatal's board on Monday night.

He says Ngubane preempted Brown's plans to rotate the Eskom board.

He's just running away before he's been fired or rotated by the Public Enterprises Minister

Ngubane has been the biggest weakling in the Eskom board.

Among other things, Ngubane is linked to a dubious oil concession in the Central African Republic (CAR) with Gupta associate Salim Essa.

Mantshantsha says Times Media will publish an explosive news report on Ngubane on Wednesday.
