Molefe’s fate was revealed on Wednesday, after an inter-ministerial committee came to a consensus on the matter, concluding that his appointment should be reversed.

This follows a decision announced by the ANC NEC on Monday that Molefe should be removed from his role at Eskom.

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown said she will appoint an acting CEO within 48 hours.

“It will be in best interests in government, Eskom and the country that the Minister of Public Enterprises directs the board to rescind the appointment of Mr Molefe,” said Justice Minister Michael Masutha, the inter-ministerial committee convenor.

The inter-ministerial committee was appointed by President Jacob Zuma to investigate Molefe’s return to Eskom.
