Dear Members and Pensioners,
As previously communicated, the former Eskom GCEO, Mr. Molefe, sought to challenge the judgement of the North Gauteng High Court of 25 January 2018 which amongst other things directed him to repay the pension benefits previously paid to him. His challenge was dismissed by the Constitutional Court in its order dated 29 July 2019 , which we received on 6 August 2019. On 8 August 2019, the Fund’s lawyers wrote to Mr. Molefe’s lawyers demanding that he repay the monies as directed by the High Court within ten days. The ten day period lapsed on 22 August 2019. The Fund confirms that as at today, 23 August 2019, no payment has been received from Mr. Molefe. We have instructed our lawyers to promptly institute court proceedings to ensure that Mr. Molefe repays the monies as directed by the High court.
We assure our members that the Fund will take all the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the High Court judgment.
Eskom Pension and Provident Fund.
