Brian Molefe to become an MP

Cape Town – Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe will become a member of parliament.

City Press reporter Andisiwe Makinana tweeted that Molefe will be sworn in as an MP.

Molefe attracted controversy when he was implicated in the Public Protector’s State of Capture report for links to the Gupta family, known to be close to President Jacob Zuma.

Parliament on Friday confirmed that Molefe was nominated to fill a vacancy on the North West list.

Presiding officers will determine when he would be sworn in as a MP, the institution said.

Molefe quit the power utility after a damning report on state capture was released by former public protector Thuli Madonsela.
