It's been six months since the Constitutional Court dismissed Brian Molefe's application to appeal the judgment ordering him to repay millions owed to the Eskom Pension and Provident Fund.

Six months have passed and not a cent has been repaid. The matter has since re-appeared on the roll of the High Court.

The former Eskom CEO is facing paying back over R10 million which the EPPF was found to have unlawfully paid to him.

While the exact nature of this new legal action is currently a mystery, the disgraced executive is reportedly calling on the South African Revenue Service to repay the portion paid to it from the illicit payment.

The fund itself refused to divulge the details of the case, releasing a response saying that:

“The matter is sub judice before the court and the fund will only comment fully once these proceedings have been concluded. We assure our members and stakeholders that the fund is pursuing all avenues available in law to ensure that the order of the high court is fully complied with."

Business Maverick requested a comment from Molefe himself, who simply noted that:

“The papers seek to correct, or vary a judgment that I have unsuccessfully tried to appeal in the past."

However, Solidarity has confirmed that the R200 000 owed to them after they took Molefe on over the R30 million in benefits paid to him has been paid as ordered.
