Cape Town – Phumzile Tshelane, CEO of state-owned nuclear firm Necsa, was given a new three-year contract after Cabinet approved his reappointment this week, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe announced on Friday.

Tshelane has been on a month-to-month contract for the past year due to a difference of opinion with the previous board in 2015, Necsa told Fin24 in a statement.  “A totally new board was appointed in March 2016.”

The appointment comes after Necsa won a Constitutional Court case last week against former board members, who alleged Tshelane sanctioned a R150 000 payment from Necsa towards the ANC’s 103rd birthday celebrations in Cape Town in 2015 and then tried to get board approval afterwards. Other allegations were that he used a company luxury car and driver for private purposes, the Mail & Guardian reported at the time.
