Brian Molefe, the former CEO of Eskom, has been directed to pay back just under R10 million, plus interest, to the power utility’s pension fund.

This follows a drawn-out legal process that dates back to 2018, when the same court set aside all Molefe’s pension payouts.

But the former Eskom boss did not pay back the money in the intervening four years, arguing that he didn’t know what exact amount he needed to pay.

The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has now ruled that Molefe needs to pay the pension fund R9 985 540 plus interest calculated from 31 October 2019 up to the date he pays.
