Suspended Eskom execs cleared of wrongdoing

Cape Town – Eskom announced on Wednesday that four of its senior executives who were suspended earlier this year have been cleared of any wrongdoing.

In March chairperson Zola Tsotsi announced that four executives – CEO Tshediso Matona, finance director Tsholofelo Molefe, group capital executive Dan Marokane and technology and commercial executive Matshela Koko - were suspended so that an inquiry could take place with unfettered access to Eskom.

In a statement Eskom said that the independent inquiry found no wrongdoing.

“Three of the executives who were suspended on March 11 2015 have since parted ways with Eskom amicably.

“There is no longer a reason to keep the remaining executive on suspension and he will return to work with immediate effect,” the statement said.

According to Eskom the report is being finalised and will be shared with government in due course.

On Wednesday the utility also announced that it would extend acting CEO Brian Molefe's contract for a further three months.
