Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe’s legal troubles have just begun, according to trade union Solidarity.
The union said in a statement that it would announce further planned legal action against Molefe on Tuesday in Pretoria, after the former power utility head lost his Constitutional Court appeal over a multi million-rand pension payout.

Solidarity chief operations officer Dirk Hermann said in a statement that the union’s proposed legal action would be revealed by Advocate Gerrie Nel.
Contacted by Fin24 on Monday morning, Molefe said he could not comment on Solidarity’s plans for private prosecution as there was no criminal offence mentioned to justify it.
This union’s plans come after the Constitutional Court dismissed Molefe’s leave to appeal a high court decision which ruled he must pay back part of the R30m pension he received from the power utility.

“Through this action against Molefe, Solidarity wants to contribute to a culture of accountability in South Africa. We cannot allow tax looters to simply get away,” said Hermann.
