Four Eskom execs cleared of wrongdoing
They were suspended to allow for a transparent investigation into the troubles plaguing the power utility.
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom executives suspended earlier this year have been cleared of any wrongdoing following an investigation commissioned in March.
In February, then Eskom chief executive Tshediso Matona and three others were suspended to allow for a transparent investigation into the troubles plaguing the power utility.
Matona took his suspension to the Labour Court but was unsuccessful in being reinstated. Instead he parted ways with the utility weeks later.
Following the suspensions, Brian Molefe, who had been heading Transnet, was appointed acting head, while Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a war room committee to deal with Eskom's problems.
Molefe's contract has now been extended by three months.
Eskom chairman Ben Ngubane has now confirmed that the board has received a presentation following the investigation which clears the remaining three executives.
They will return to work with immediate effect.
A full report is being finalised and will be made public in due course.
