Necsa execs head to court over their axing and board disbandment

Executives at the Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa (Necsa) are heading to court in a bid to set aside a decision by Minister of Energy, Jeff Radebe to axe them, as well as disband the company's board.

CEO of Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa (Necsa) Phumzile Tshelane, as well as the Chairman of Necsa, Dr. Kelvin Kemm have allegedly been removed from their positions by Radebe.

Lawyer at ENS Africa Douglas Molepo explains.

I am acting for Dr Kelvin Kemm, Mr Phumzile Tshelane and board member by the name of Pamela Bossman. They have instructed me to launch an application to review and set aside the decision of the minister to disband the entire board.

Douglas Molepo, Lawyer at ENS Africa

My clients believe that the decision by the minister violates their right to procedural fairness. Number 2, the minister did not apply his mind in the whole matter. We believe there is an ulterior motive in the removal of these directors.
