eskomBusinessLive reports that Eskom is facing multipronged investigations into its reappointment of Brian Molefe as CEO, with Parliament’s public enterprises committee deciding on Tuesday to institute an urgent parliamentary inquiry into the matter.  

The inquiry could be on the lines of the one into the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) and may see Molefe being called to face questions in Parliament, of which he was a member until earlier this month.  The focus of disapproval is also turning towards Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown, who came in for a roasting by MPs, including by former finance minister Pravin Gordhan.  It was said that it appeared she had not exercised her oversight role properly.
