Eskom has placed one of its executives, Molefi Nkhabu, on precautionary suspension pending an investigation into maladministration.
“Eskom has placed its Senior General Manager of Assurance and Forensics, Mr Molefi Nkhabu, on precautionary suspension pending an investigation into circumstances surrounding internal audit investigation reports.
“[This] pertains to transactions that he signed off, which contain inferences or conclusions, which had the effect of exonerating certain previous Eskom executives implicated in maladministration,” said the power utility on Thursday.
Eskom came to the decision to place Nkhabu on suspension until the investigation is finalised, as a result of the seriousness of the allegations against him.
“The board and executive management of Eskom are keen and resolute in rooting out maladministration," the power company said. - SAnews.gov.za
