Eskom: Reinstatement of officials above board
The utility has defended the move saying there has been nothing untoward about the process.
CAPE TOWN – Eskom insists the reinstatement of two senior officials following their suspensions is above board.
The power utility says there’s nothing untoward about the apparent about turn.
The pair was then reinstated just days later.
Eskom’s Human Resources Group Executive Elsie Pule says the utility has made significant progress in the disciplinary processes against Matshela Koko, since announcing it will be taking action more than a month ago.
The suspension of the former interim head and the setting up of dates have been highlighted as some of the milestones reached so far.
Pule adds Eskom officials have gone through all the "critical hoops" and they are at a stage where the hearing into the Koko matter will start soon.
Eskom further addressed reports on the suspension and subsequent reinstatement of two of its senior employees over irregularities related to deals with the Gupta-linked company Trillian.
