Eskom’s Matshela Koko suspended

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Eskom’s embattled Head of Generation and former acting Chief Executive Officer, Matshela Koko, has been suspended.

Koko previously avoided suspension after a disciplinary hearing.

Last week, Koko appeared in front of the parliamentary committee investigating state capture and corruption at Eskom.

He approached the Labour Court in Johannesburg last week to seek an interdict preventing Eskom from removing him from his post as Head of Generation. The court issued an interim order stopping Eskom from firing Koko.

Eskom issued Koko and other executives with an ultimatum to either resign or be fired over corruption allegations.

Three executives who were on suspension resigned last week.
