eskomANA reports that Eskom's head of generation, Matshela Koko, on Wednesday confirmed that he had been suspended from the state-owned power utility.  

"I have since this evening received a confirmation of my suspension from Eskom.  I have been served with new charges.  I welcome these developments and once again look forward to clearing my name in a tribunal," he wrote on social media.  Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe confirmed the suspension.  This was the second suspension at the power utility this week.  Earlier on Wednesday, Phasiwe confirmed the suspension of Eskom's chief information officer, Sean Maritz, pending an investigation into allegations of impropriety.  He had been placed on temporary suspension last Friday, which was then converted into a permanent suspension.  On 3 January, Eskom advised that Koko and former acting group executive for group capital, Prish Govender, had been reinstated after they were cleared in disciplinary hearings last year.  At the time, Phasiwe had said that the disciplinary hearings for the executives had been transparent and fair.
