Ex-Eskom chief Brian Molefe to be sworn-in as MP

Former Eskom chief executive Brian Molefe will soon be sworn in as an MP – a move that is likely to fuel speculation about a pending reshuffle of President Jacob Zuma’s Cabinet.

Parliament confirmed on Friday that Molefe had been nominated to “fill a vacancy on the North West list of ANC Members of Parliament‚ which is depleted”.

The Sunday Times reported last month that the North West ANC had forwarded Molefe’s name to Luthuli House.

Molefe resigned from Eskom after details of his relationship with the controversial Gupta family were laid bare in the public protector’s state capture report.
