Solidarity lays charges against former Eskom bosses

Trade union Solidarity has laid criminal charges against former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe and board chairperson Ben Ngubane for alleged fraud involving his R11 million pension payout.

The High Court last month ruled that Molefe was never entitled to his pension payout, ordering him to pay back the money.

He is appealing that ruling.

The trade union's Dirk Herman says they have also asked the Hawks to investigate.

The focus of the charges is on fraud. The fact of the mater is Mr Molefe was enriched via an unlawful transaction.

It was not only Mr Molefe involved, it was also Mr Ben Ngubani. The specific High Court judgment paved the way for criminal action.

Dirk Herman, Deputy General Secretary of Trade Union Solidarity

We met with the Hawks yesterday and the Hawks also indicated to us that they had already started with the investigation after the judgment because in the judgment we have asked the court to instruct the NPA to continue with investigations and they said under oath that they would do that.
