The South African Communist Party (SACP) says it will set up an independent judicial commission of inquiry to look into a number of key issues, including Eskom.
The party has called for an investigation into state capture, the disbandment of Eskom’s board and the reappointment of Brian Molofe as the parastatal’s CEO.
The SACP’s Solly Mapaila was addressing supporters at the Moses Kotane memorial lecture in Rustenburg in the North West on Sunday.
Mapaila has highlighted how a report by the South African Council of Churches, which exposes damning information on state capture, will reveal a complete picture of the deep roots of corruption within the public sector.
He says the reappointment of Molefe is at the core of the rot at the power utility.
“And that board must reverse the irregular appointment of Brian Molefe as the CEO.”
General secretary Blade Nzimande has described the return of Molefe to Eskom as perverse and warned that the ANC will pay the price for this.
