labourcourtsANA reports that the Labour Court on Tuesday postponed the hearing of Brian Molefe’s challenge to his dismissal as Eskom CEO, pending the outcome of high court applications by the DA and the EFF for his re-appointment to be ruled invalid and set aside.  

The court rejected Molefe’s contention that he needed to be restored to his position at Eskom in order to oppose the high court application to overturn his re-appointment.  It said he had already filed papers extensively in that matter in his private capacity and ruled that he was “entitled to participate and oppose the High Court applications and he can do so without an order from this court restoring his employment status.”  The Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have separately approached the high court to have Molefe’s reinstatement at the helm of Eskom in May declared null and void.
