The Eskom Pension and Provident Fund (EPPF) says it is worried that former CEO Brian Molefe will benefit to the tune of over R2 million if the South African Revenue Service (SARS) does not pay back money it received from the fund following his early retirement.

The fund is trying to claw back money it paid to Molefe after he took early retirement from Eskom in 2016. Molefe had been named in then-public protector Thuli Madonsela's State of Capture report, which linked him to the notorious Gupta family.

In a 2018 judgment, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ordered Molefe to pay back the money he received from the pension fund, finding that the payment had been unlawful. The court also set aside Eskom's acceptance of Molefe's early retirement and the decision to reinstate him as CEO.
