eskomMoneyweb writes that Solidarity has given former finance minister Pravin Gordhan the opportunity to tell the court everything he knows about Brian Molefe and his controversial reinstatement at Eskom.  

The trade union has cited Gordhan as one of the respondents in its urgent application to have Molefe’s reinstatement as CEO at the power utility overturned.  Solidarity deputy general secretary Deon Reyneke said this had been done in an effort to give Gordhan an opportunity to “assist the court” with any information he might have on the matter.  Molefe left Eskom at the end of last year after he was implicated in former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s ‘State of Capture’ report.  He was subsequently sworn in as a member of parliament and was then controversially reinstated as Eskom CEO earlier this month.  Solidarity’s application will be heard on 20 June, separate from the applications by the DA and EFF due in court on 6 June.  The Solidarity application is distinct from the others in the remedies it seeks.
