Ngubane defends move to suspend Koko from Eskom

Former Eskom board chairman Ben Ngubane says the decision to suspend former acting CEO Matshela Koko at the power utility was a collective one.

Ngubane had been giving testimony before the parliamentary commettee investigating corruption and maladministration at State Owned Enterprise.

He says the decision followed the board and governance committee engagement on Koko.

Ngubane says "Koko was given 48 hours to make his case so that he could avoid suspension and also clear his name."

Ngubane was appointed board chairman back in 2015 and he tendered his resignation in 2017, after the fallout of Brian Molefe’s resignation. 

He has admitted that he was a good Chairman.
