The Public Enterprises Committee of the National Assembly is receiving evidence from former CEO Mr Brian Molefe.

The Public Enterprises Portfolio committee is probing allegations of grand corruption, governance failures and mismanagement of state funds at the power utility. Among the allegations that the pair will be expected to answer are payments to Trillian even though there were no signed contracts in place and Molefe’s R30 million pension payout.

Earlier this month another former Eskom CEO, Tshediso Matona described how the governance and ethical environment at the parastatal was deteriorating when he took over as CEO in late 2014.

He also mentioned that there was deep infighting within the board‚ led by then-chairman Zola Tsotsi. This was mainly over procurement issues‚ to the extent that the board had become almost dysfunctional.
