Lynne BrowneNCA reports that Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has come out fighting over the Brian Molefe resignation saga and says she has evidence that Molefe and Eskom lied about his claimed early retirement.  

Molefe earlier this month announced he was taking his former employer and Brown to court after the board was ordered by her to rescind his reappointment as CEO.  Molefe and Eskom each claim that when he previously left the utility, they mistakenly believed he was entitled to early retirement.  When they realised this was not the case, they agreed that the best option was for Molefe to return to work.  But, in a detailed affidavit, Brown insisted that she always believed Molefe had resigned and pointed out that she even issued a media statement to that effect.  Neither Eskom nor Molefe sought to correct her on this during the next five months.  Also, Eskom's own minutes reflected that he had indeed resigned.
