Molefe’s lawyer to study court ruling on pension payout

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe’s lawyer Barry Farber says they will study Thursday’s court judgment before they decide their next step.

The High Court in Pretoria set aside Molefe’s R30 million pension payout.

The court also ordered Molefe to pay back R11 million of the R30 million that he has already received after taking early retirement in 2016.

He has been given about 10 days to pay back the money.

Farber says they still have to study the judgment, but has indicated that Molefe still wishes to work for the State.

“He just wants to be treated fairly and he did a lot for Eskom, in his own words and he wanted to be remunerated. I would say that he wants to serve the state and if there is any position he could earn money and go back he would, but again I can’t speak for him.’
