The gathering of less than 20 protesters planned to stop him from entering Eskom's Megawatt Park but arrived well after Molefe had reported for duty.

The DA and Cope protesters demonstrated instead, calling for him to leave the premises.

By nine o' clock, he had already held a meeting or two.. and an impromptu briefing with Eskom staff members at the reception area.
