Public Enterprise Minister, Lynne Brown, has warned newly appointed Eskom board members to be careful who they associate with. Speaking at a special Eskom general meeting, Brown warned that any information could be used against board members.
Brown added that she is yet to be briefed on the outcome of suspended executive, Matshela Koko. She was responding to various reports that Koko had been reinstated as Eskom CEO.
The Minister has also called on the board to urgently appoint a permanent CEO.
Meanwhile the Helen Suzman Foundation has filed court papers against President Jacob Zuma, the Gupta brothers and others to recover billions of rands paid out by Eskom to Gupta-owned businesses, while seeking to have all these transactions declared corrupt and unlawful.
The application at the High Court in Pretoria names 73 respondents, including President Zuma, his son Duduzane, the three Gupta brothers, Ministers Malusi Gigaba, Lynne Brown and Mosebenzi Zwane, Eskom itself, former Eskom executives including Anoj Singh and Brian Molefe, and former Oakbay CEO Nazeem Howa.
