necsa1Business Report writes that the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) has called for the sacking of the board of the SA Nuclear Energy Corporation (Necsa) after the North Gauteng High Court found on Friday that the decision by former energy minister Jeff Radebe to axe the previous board was unlawful.  

The High Court in Pretoria ruled in favour of former board chairperson Kelvin Kemm, former chief executive Phumzile Tshelane and the former chairperson of the audit and compliance sub-committee, Pam Bosman, when it declared that Radebe’s actions had been unlawful and set aside his decision to axe the board in December 2018.  “We are making a call to the Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy to sack the current Necsa board and institute a full-blown investigation on the intellectual property of Necsa, which has found its way into private hands without any benefit to Necsa and whether there are no deliberate acts of sabotage taking place in the organisation,” Nehawu said on Friday.  Radebe axed the board in December 2018, citing serious governance deficiencies and a lack of effective oversight over the company and its subsidiaries.  Nehawu said the judgment vindicated its long-held position that Radebe had been nothing “but a disaster” to the nuclear industry in general and Necsa in particular.
