The DA has lodged papers in the High Court in Pretoria to interdict Brain Molefe's re-appointment as Eskom CEO.
Molefe reported for duty early on Monday morning after the Eskom board, on Friday, announced that he was reinstated to his position following a dispute about his R30 million pension pay-out.
The DA says Molefe is not fit an proper to hold the position, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.
The opposition party says it wants the High Court in Pretoria to review and set aside Molefe's reinstatement.
They are basically asking the court to review and set aside Molefe's reappointment, saying that it is illegal and irrational.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
When Molefe stepped down he claimed it was in the interest of good governance after the state capture report revealed his relationship with the controversial Gupta family.
Meanwhile, the ANC has Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown for her to explain why Molefe was once again offered the top job. Neither parties have commented on the meeting.
