Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe is expected back in the witness stand on Tuesday morning before Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo at the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture.

Molefe is expected to continue with his testimony after it was cut short in late January. Three hours into his testimony, Zondo adjourned the proceedings after it became known he had been in contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.

UPDATE: Molefe says he refused to approve Optimum’s new coal price proposal

The former Eskom boss is alleged to have abused his power at both Eskom and Transnet, where he was CEO before moving to the power utility, enabling the Gupta family and their associates to secure millions of rands of lucrative deals.
