The Constitutional Court of South Africa has denied the appeal of former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe against a ruling by a lower court that he pay back any of the pension he was awarded after he left the utility. In January 2018 the North Gaunteng High Court found that Molefe had unlawfully enriched himself from the Eskom penion fund, the Solidarity trade union said in a statement today.
Molefe was also ordered to pay almost all Solidarity’s costs in the matter, the movement said. The Deomcratic Alliance and the Economic Freedom Fighters also opposed Molefe’s appeal.
Molefe’s name has repeatedly come up in testimony before the state capture inquiry and he was alleged to have had dealings with the Gupta brothers.
