Eskom's legal head takes her suspension battle to CCMA

Eskom's suspended legal head Suzanne Daniels is expected to approach the CCMA on Tuesday to fight her suspension.

The power utility issued Daniels with two completely different charge sheets last month to motivate her suspension, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.

She faces several misconduct charges in relation to Eskom’s contract with McKinsey and Trillian as well as a report she compiled explaining these agreements.

Daniels said there was no basis for her suspension, when she was first charged by former CEO Johnny Dladla in early October.

The first charge sheet was handed to Suzanne Daniels on 2 October by former acting Eskom CEO Johnny Dladla, containing complaints about her so-called destructive management styles and a whistle-blower report on the costs of team-building event.

She was given another charge sheet for misconduct, on the same day that Sean Maritz was appointed as CEO.

The new charges claim Daniels failed to advise the board and Eskom management about the liability in terms of paying McKinsey and Trillian.

A few days later, when acting Eskom CEO Sean Maritz is appointed, she is issued with a new charge sheet on charges of misconduct relating to Eskom's relationship with and contact with Mckinsey and Gupta-linked subcontractor Trillian.

Meanwhile, Eskom says it will oppose the lifting of the suspension at the CCMA and denies claims that Daniels' suspension is linked to her exposing executives accused of irregularities.
