- Mzansi had a lot to say about BLF leader, Andile Mngxitama's call to bring reinstate Brain Molefe at Eskom
- The majority of those who responded to the story slammed the idea
- While in charge of Eskom, Molefe was accused of corruption and mismanagement
Briefly.co.za recently shared a story about BLF leader Andile Mngxitama's repeated call for the return of former Eskom CEO, Brian Molefe.
Mngxitama has said that only Molefe can save Eskom, despite allegations of corruption and mismanagement against Molefe.
Here's what South Africans thought of Molefe's possible return.
Many South Africans on Facebook were outraged at even the suggestion that Molefe should return to the helm of the power utility. One person said:
"It's no secret that he is too close with the Guptas."
Another user, Thisila Magijima, said:
"He [Molefe] knows very well that he was deployed by Zumas and Guptas. BLF was formed to protect Zuptas. Now he wants his BLF to benefit in corruption."
Donny Chepape agreed, saying: "
This Mngxitama is out of his mind. How can you call back a corrupt person like Brian Molefe to go back to Eskom?"
Only a handful of comments were in support of Molefe, including one which claimed that no load-shedding occurred on Molefe's watch - a claim which is, in fact, untrue.
Jerome Dolamo summed up a lot of people's feelings when he wrote in response to Mngxitama's suggestion to bring back the disgraced Eskom boss:
"Whoever is busy supplying you with that bad grass you smoking needs to be arrested, as a matter of emergency!"
