eskomFin24 reports that Eskom announced on Thursday that it had placed its Senior General Manager of Assurance and Forensics, Molefi Nkhabu, on a precautionary suspension.  

The power utility said this was pending an investigation into circumstances surrounding internal audit investigation reports related to transactions that he signed off on.  The reports contain “inferences or conclusions which had the effect of exonerating certain previous Eskom executives implicated in maladministration”.  The company did not say which previous executives it was referring to, or when the investigation into Nkhabu would start.  “The Eskom executive management, whilst espousing the principle of the presumption of innocence, due to the seniority of Mr Nkhabu and the seriousness of the allegations made against him, took a decision that it would be better for him to be suspended until the investigation is finalised,” the group indicated in a statement.
