SolidarityTimesLIVE reports that trade union Solidarity has indicated that former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe should expect a knock on the door from the sheriff of the court.  

Solidarity said on Tuesday it had a writ of execution, authorising the sheriff to attach Molefe’s Pretoria property to offset costs awarded against him in court.  The union said it had requested the sheriff to proceed with executing the attachment of Molefe’s property at his home.  The property will then be sold at public auction for Molefe’s debt of R708,102 to Solidarity to be settled.  This amount, the union pointed out, excluded the order relating to costs in the Constitutional Court, which have yet to be finalised.  The high court previously found that Molefe enriched himself by getting involved unlawfully in the allocation of about R30 million of pension funds, R10 million of which he has already received.  Molefe attempted to have this ruling and the cost order against him set aside by the Constitutional Court, but failed.  Solidarity and civil rights organisation AfriForum have also approached advocate Gerrie Nel to start the process of privately prosecuting Molefe.
