The Eskom board has fi­nally heeded calls from many quar­ters, in­clud­ing a di­rect in­struc­tion from Pub­lic En­ter­prises Min­is­ter Lynne Brown, to drop Brian Molefe as its CEO.

Chair­per­son Ben Ngubane is­sued a a state­ment on Fri­day evening an­nounc­ing that the board had “given ef­fect to the min­is­ter’s di­rec­tive to re­scind its de­ci­sion to re­in­state Brian Molefe as group chief ex­ec­u­tive”.

Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment, the di­rec­tive, sent to the board ear­lier this week, or­dered that the board’s de­ci­sion to re­in­state Molefe ear­lier in the month be re­versed.

“Molefe is no longer the group CEO of Eskom and will no longer serve as a di­rec­tor on the board of Eskom,” the state­ment read.
