Zola Tsotsi to face Eskom board

JOHANNESBURG - Eskom chairman Zola Tsotsi said he has done nothing wrong and will present his case to the parastatal's board today.

Tsotsi's future will be determined at a board meeting following allegations he interfered with daily operations and took executive decisions.

Tsotsi announced earlier this month Eskom CEO Tshediso Matona and three other executives had been asked to step aside for the duration of an independent inquiry.

He said it's up to the board whether he stays or goes.

"I believe in all my conscience that I've done nothing wrong, and so in my view I'm going to put my case forward and I feel comfortable with my case and my position will prevail."

Matona challenged his suspension in the Labour Court last week, arguing that he hadn't been accused of any wrongdoing and therefore his suspension was unlawful.

The suspended CEO brought forward an urgent application in an attempt to compel the Labour Court to set aside his suspension.

Matona has been tight-lipped about his sudden departure two weeks ago, but it's since emerged that he believed the matter was unfair.

He's taken it further by lodging a complaint at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), but because the process could take time, he's approached the court in order to be reinstated.

Eskom's legal team argued that the suspension is for a maximum of three months to ensure the inquiry goes ahead without interference or influence.
