eskomEWN reports that Eskom has confirmed that fresh charges have been brought against its head of legal services Suzanne Daniels.  

The charges include serious misconduct, distribution of confidential information, settlement of the McKinsey and Trillian matter, as well as her involvement in the Optimum and Tegeta mine pre-payments.  On 8 March the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) ruled that Eskom was guilty of an unfair labour practice in its two attempts to suspend Daniels in October and December last year.  The CCMA awarded Daniels five months' remuneration as compensation and ordered that she be allowed to return to work on 19 March 2018.  Eskom's spokesperson Dikatso Mothae said the CCMA's ruling did not make any decision relating to the disciplinary process.  “Those are the new charges that we have been brought forward…  The new board (members) are looking at this with a fresh perspective, a fresh eye and want to instil a certain level of governance in terms of how we deal with issues of misconduct across the board.”
