Eskom boss Brian Molefe calls it quits

Eskom CEO Brian Molefe is resigning from the power utility at the end of the year.

In a statement, Molefe says he will leave Eskom on 1 January 2017.

He says his resignation is in the interest of Eskom and the public, but denies that the decision is an admission of guilt.

The announcement comes a week after the release of the damning state capture report, which claimed that he visited the controversial Gupta family on several occasions.

The report alleges that cellphone evidence between Molefe and the Guptas places him at their residence in Saxonwold at least 14 times.
