CAPE TOWN – Parliament's Public Enterprises Committee says it's becoming increasingly apparent an inquiry into Eskom is necessary.

After initially refusing to answer questions related the re-appointment of Brian Molefe as Chief Executive Officer, Eskom board chairperson Ben Ngubane says he's open to an investigation.

Ngubane says Molefe's request for early retirement and his reinstatement last week can be backed up with supporting documents.

He says it was only once Eskom's pension fund administrator did the calculations, did the board learn it would have to pay Molefe R30 million.

“This board will welcome any forensic, any type of investigation into Eskom. We will welcome it tomorrow, not next year, but tomorrow.”

Ngubane says South African should appreciate the board's efforts in handling the matter.

“The board has worked very hard, South Africa must at least acknowledge that. I don’t know why it’s so easy to rubbish everything. There was a State Capture report, she can tell you what processes she has undertaken in the review process of the State Capture report.”
