Johannesburg - Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi denied on Tuesday afternoon that she had suspended the board of the Central Energy Fund (CEF).

Instead, the minister said she merely handed the board members letters on Wednesday last week “requesting an explanation on concerns”.

Her denial came after media reports on Tuesday indicated that Kubayi had suspended the entire board, including its acting chief executive, chief financial officer and company secretary. Chair Luvo Makasi was also reported to be one of the casualties.
