COURT RE­JECTS MOLEFE ON ESKOM PEN­SION

The Witness - - NEWS -

PRE­TO­RIA — Em­bat­tled for­mer Eskom CEO Brian Molefe faces a new chal­lenge af­ter the North Gaut­eng High Court re­jected his ap­pli­ca­tion to ap­peal a de­ci­sion forc­ing him to pay back part of his R30 mil­lion pen­sion wind­fall.

Molefe wanted a higher court to re­view his case, af­ter the same court ruled in Jan­uary that he was not en­ti­tled to keep the money he con­tro­ver­sially re­ceived from the power util­ity af­ter work­ing only 18 months as chief ex­ec­u­tive. In his ar­gu­ment, Molefe had main­tained that he was en­ti­tled to the money, and that the court erred in find­ing that that he re­signed from Eskom and that his de­par­ture was un­re­lated to the early re­tire­ment pack­age.
