The application of Brian Molefe, former Eskom CEO, for leave to appeal will be heard in the Pretoria High Court tomorrow. Full arguments of both parties will be heard.
This follows after Molefe filed his application for leave to appeal on 31 January in a bid to have the judgment against him reversed. This judgment delivered on 25 January ruled that his reappointment and pension payment of approximately R11 million were unlawful.
Anton van der Bijl, head of Labour Law Services at Solidarity, said that Solidarity would oppose the application. “Tomorrow is merely Molefe’s attempt to postpone the inevitable. However, we believe that the judge will not delay justice by granting the appeal,” Van der Bijl said.
