The ANC on Friday joined a chorus of condemnation against Brian Molefe's return to Eskom as chief executive. The ruling party said Molefe was not in a position to return to his post after being named numerous times in the report titled State of Capture by former public protector Thuli Madonsela. The report had investigated allegations that the Gupta family had used their relationship with President Jacob Zuma to influence government tenders. "The ANC condemns the unfortunate and reckless decision taken by the Board of Directors of Eskom to reinstate Brian Molefe as Chief Executive Officer of the energy utility. Molefe left Eskom under a cloud following the release of the Public Protector's report into State Capture late last year‚" the party said in a statement.
