JOHANNESBURG - Former acting Eskom CEO Matshela Koko has been suspended.
Koko has taken to Twitter, saying he’s been served with new charges.
I have since this evening received a confirmation of my suspension from Eskom. I have been served with new charges. I welcome these developments and once again look forward to clearing my name in a tribunal.— Matshela Koko (@koko_matshela) January 31, 2018
He says he welcomes the developments and looks forward to clearing his name in a tribunal.
Eskom has confirmed his suspension.
Koko approached the Labour Court last week after the power utility’s new board gave him an ultimatum to either resign within 24 hours or be fired.
He’s been implicated in the awarding of contracts to a company in which his stepdaughter owns shares.
But he was cleared of wrongdoing following a disciplinary hearing.
Koko's lawyers say the board has no right to remove him.
