- Eskom says because Maritz resigned he will no longer be subjected to a disciplinary hearing
Eskom has announced that its suspended chief information officer Sean Maritz has resigned with immediate effect.
Maritz was suspended at the end of January pending an investigation into a letter which he wrote to McKinsey consultancy. In the letter, Maritz claimed that the contract between Eskom and McKinsey was valid.
Eskom officials said because Maritz had resigned, he would no longer be subjected to a disciplinary hearing which was scheduled for next week.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Maritz had served as Eskom’s acting CEO for a brief period last year. It was during this period that Maritz went against official company policy and contacted McKinsey.
Maritz also signed off on Eskom legal head Suzanne Daniels’ suspension. She was suspended for over money which was used for a team-building trip. He also signed off on the damning internal report about Eskom’s relationship with Trillian and McKinsey.
Meanwhile, Lynne Brown resigned as a Member of Parliament on Wednesday. The former minister of public enterprises left office under a cloud of controversy and speculation about her role in the state capture scandal.
