The North Gauteng High Court has on Tuesday rejected embattled former Eskom Chief Executive Officer Brian Molefe’s application to appeal a decision forcing him to pay back R11 million pension pay out. The court dismissed his application with costs.

This is the same court which ordered Molefe to pay back the R11 million he got as a part of his pension pay out.

Eskom awarded Molefe R30 million golden handshake in 2016 after working at the power utility for 18 months and was paid R11 million pension windfall.

Solidarity which brought the matter to court said on Tuesday Molefe was abusing court procedures to defer the reimbursement of the money he wrongfully gained.

“It is an evil day when prominent South Africans manhandle court procedures to safeguard unlawful activities that have enriched them. As per us, Molefe’s activities fit the meaning of corruption,” said Solidarity Chief Executive Officer Dirk Hermann.

Solidarity has already opened criminal charges against Molefe and former Eskom Chairperson, Ben Ngubane, and is sitting tight for further action by the Hawks and the National Prosecuting Authority.

“Molefe should hang his head in shame and apologise to South Africa,” said Hermann.

Hermann said Molefe had made distortions to enrich himself at the expense of Eskom and taxpayers money.

Democratic Alliance Federal Council  chairman James Selfe said his party welcomed  the dismissal of Molefe’s, bid, saying it was obvious to them the former Eskom CEO’s application had no possibility to succeed.

“This decision isn’t the end of Molefe’s worries as the DA has laid criminal charges against him and it is now time for the National Prosecuting Authority to prosecute  him,” added Selfe.
