Solidarity says it will intensify its efforts to force Molefe to pay back the money.

Molefe failed to repay monies he unlawfully received from the pension fund after parting ways with the power utility.

He was given until last week Friday to repay the money but failed to do so.

According to Solidarity's Anton van der Bijl, it is currently preparing court papers for various legal avenues to compel Molefe to adhere to the judgement.

However, Van der Bijl says Molefe's lawyers have indicated that he would challenge the ruling of the High Court in Pretoria which dismissed his bid to appeal against an earlier judgement with costs.

The union has now written to the pension fund to also put pressure on Molefe to return the money.

"We have a two-phased process that we will follow, firstly we are going to launch a semi-urgent application in the High Court and argue that there was not adhered to the judgement. Secondly, we are going to put pressure on the pension fund to collect the money."
