PRETORIA – Trade union solidarity has said it wrote to the Eskom Pension Fund asking for steps to be taken to recover some R10 million from former CEO Brian Molefé.

The union and lobby group AfriForum announced on Tuesday that they have also begun the process of prosecuting a private prosecution against Molefe.

In 2017, the Pretoria Supreme Court found that Molefhe tried illegally to enrich himself when he was paid a R30 million pension, of which one-third of the compensation was paid.

Solidarity director Dirk Herman has said that several fronts of justice have already begun against Molefe.

"Put additional pressure on Eskom and the pension fund, not only to recover the money, but also to take additional appropriate measures against Molefe," he said.

Private prosecutor Gary Nell said he wrote to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) requesting that a decision be made whether he would prosecute Moleph.

"We are used to expecting nothing from SAPS or the NPA without forcing them. In this particular issue that happened, we submitted our documents and stated in our documents that the NPA had not investigated the matter. "

The NPA has not yet responded to a request for comment.
