Brian Molefe to return to Eskom helm on Monday
Eskom has confirmed that Brian Molefe will return to Eskom.
Molefe has been a Member of Parliament (MP) for the African National Congress (ANC) since February.
Eskom board spokesperson, Khulani Qoma, says Molefe's return follows Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown's decision to decline the R30 million payment to Molefe.
Molefe served for 18 months at Eskom.
His resignation last year came a week after the release of the damning Public Protector's state capture report, which claimed that he visited the controversial Gupta family on several occasions.
The report alleges cellphone evidence between Molefe and the Guptas places him at their residence in Saxonwold at least 14 times.
