'Tshediso Matona could've been forced out of Eskom'
Questions are being raised about whether or not Matona was pushed out of Eskom following his suspension.
The utility will now continue with its plans under the leadership of Brian Molefe.
Last night, Eskom released a statement saying the board and Matona decided that his departure would be in the best interests of the parastatal.
Questions have been raised about whether or not Matona was pushed out of Eskom following his suspension and his fight to be reinstated.
Eskom said the decision was amicable but energy expert Chris Yelland said Matona could have been forced out.
"I do think he has been pushed out. I think a wrong decision was made and I think it was soon realised that he was not the right person for the job."
Yelland said Molefe may now have the opportunity to take the company forward.
"I am sure Molefe is going to be appointed in a more permanent position, the minister has in fact made that abundantly clear that is what she wants."
Eskom insists that it hasn't accused Matona of any wrongdoing or misconduct.
