ancTMG Digital/BusinessLive reports that according to Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown, a meeting held with ANC officials about the reappointment of Eskom CEO Brian Molefe agreed that government would resolve the matter.  

This was despite ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe telling News24 that the ANC had called on Brown to rescind Molefe’s reappointment.  The minister was "in discussion with President Jacob Zuma and his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa on the matter"‚ Brown’s spokesman said.  Molefe returned to his position at the state-owned power utility on Monday morning after leaving amid controversy in 2016 following the release of former public protector Thuli Madonsela’s ‘State of Capture’ report.  Following the announcement of his return last week‚ the ANC said the move was reckless and fed into the perception that the government was not serious about tackling corruption.  Brown’s decision to endorse the Eskom board’s move to return Molefe to the post has been widely criticised and is now the subject of court action by the Democratic Alliance (DA).
