Opposition weigh in on Molefe appointment

JOHANNESBURG - Political parties have weighed in on the news that former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe will be sworn in as a member of Parliament.

The Congress of the People has called the appointment a disgrace and an insult to the Office of the Public Protector.

Molefe resigned as Eskom CEO after being implicated in the Public Protector’s State of Capture report last year.
