The Pretoria High Court will tomorrow announce its ruling on the unlawful payments former Eskom CEO had received in December 2016.
This comes after trade union Solidarity approached the High Court on 29 November 2017 to declare as unlawful the controversial pension award of around R30 million granted to him and the sum of more than R10 million already paid out to Molefe.
According to Anton van der Bijl, head of Solidarity’s Centre for Fair Labour Practices, Solidarity wants to see that justice prevails and that Molefe pays back all pension pay-outs made to him and benefits granted to him. “Molefe acted unlawfully and in no way within the framework of Eskom’s pension and provident fund, and that is why it would please us if the court rules tomorrow that Molefe is to be held liable for it in his personal capacity,” Van der Bijl said.
Members of the media are cordially invited to attend court proceedings.
