Former Eskom boss Brian Molefe is playing a dangerous game, paying only a small fraction of what he owes Solidarity. Molefe paid R100 000, a full R608 000 short of the R708 000 owed in legal costs.
Solidarity is hell-bent on recovering the R708 000 Brian Molefe owes them, unfazed by the R100 000 that made its way into their account from the disgraced Eskom boss.
Briefly.co.za reported that Molefe had lost his bid to retain a R30 million pension payment from the embattled utility, with the court ruling that costs should be paid to the lobby group.
Molefe is now faced with repaying R10 million of the amount, along with a steep legal bill owed to Solidarity.
In a statement, Anton van der Bijl commented on the situation, confirming that they were on a warpath as far as Molefe was concerned:
“Mr Molefe paid R100,000 into our bank account yesterday. So there is still approximately R608,000 outstanding. We have given urgent instructions to the sheriff to proceed with the warrant of execution."
Solidarity had been asked for a month-long extension in the matter by Molefe, but the union had given him a week to cough up instead, reports TimesLIVE.
The Sowetan reports that AfriFourm had aided Solidarity in their pursuit of the former executive, with Advocate Gerrie Nel leading the way.
