Cape Town – The Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) can intervene in former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe’s Labour Court application, Judge Connie Prinsloo ruled on Tuesday.
Molefe’s application is set to be heard this Thursday.
Molefe was reappointed as CEO of the parastatal by the Eskom board on May 12, after a dispute over a R30m pension payout.
However, Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown - who initially objected to the Eskom board's proposed pension payout for Molefe but endorsed his return - announced that his reappointment had been rescinded on May 30.
Molefe approached the Labour Court to challenge the decision to rescind his reappointment.
Molefe resigned from his position as the parastatal's CEO in November 2016 after a report titled State of Capture by then Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found that Molefe communicated regularly with the controversial Gupta family and that he had, on a number of occasions, visited their Saxonwold compound in Johannesburg.
Molefe was sworn in as a Member of Parliament shortly after resigning from Eskom.
