eskomEWN reports that former Eskom board chairperson Ben Ngubane on Wednesday gave the parliamentary Eskom inquiry a glowing account of former chief executive Brian Molefe.  

He told Members of Parliament (MPs) that the country should thank Molefe for staving off load shedding and getting investors to buy Eskom bonds again.   He only had praise for Molefe, saying:  “Problems started when Molefe left.  I think that’s when the dissonance started to appear.”  This despite Molefe having been fingered in the Public Protector’s report on state capture and notwithstanding the controversy around his R30 million pension.  Ngubane irked MPs by refusing to answer questions on state capture, which he said were “rubbish”.
