eskomFin24 reports that Eskom will investigate whether documents and correspondence that relate to the reinstatement of Brian Molefe as chief executive were destroyed shortly after they were requested by Parliament.  

This follows a statement by Democratic Alliance (DA) MP Natasha Mazzone on Wednesday, which stated:  “The DA has it on good authority that Eskom is currently in the process of destroying key documents and correspondence relating to the Molefe fiasco.”  Molefe’s reinstatement is a matter of legal and legislative concern.  The DA’s trial to have his reinstatement rescinded will be heard in the North Gauteng High Court on 6 June.  In addition, Eskom was on Tuesday given 14 days by Parliament to hand over all communication and documents relating to his reinstatement for its own inquiry into the matter.  Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has asked Eskom chairperson Ben Ngubane to investigate the matter of the documents.
