NUM brands Molefe's return to Eskom 'a joke'

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) says they are waiting for a detailed explanation from Eskom on Brian Molefe's return as the power utility's CEO.

Molefe resigned from the power utility after a number of allegations against him the Public Protector's State Capture report. The report questioned his close ties to the controversial Gupta family. 

"This situation is contributing towards making Eskom one of the weakest organisation in terms of leadership. We will await a proper invitation from Eskom so that we can comment appropriately on this joke," says NUM General Secretary David Sipunzi.

He says Eskom must extend its new HR policy to its members and other employees, who will also then be able to resign or take early pension voluntarily and later return to their previous position without loss of benefits.

"The NUM will further engage on the matter extensively during its special NEC on Tuesday next week where a final organisational position will be communicated on this matter."
