Johannesburg - Eskom has terminated the services of its evidence leader, Sebetja Matsaung, in the disciplinary hearing of suspended Eskom executive Matshela Koko.

In a statement released on Saturday, Eskom said Matsaung’s services were terminated following an altercation between Matsaung and Financial Mail’s Deputy Editor Sikonathi Mantshantsha after the hearing was adjourned on Friday.

“Eskom condemns Matsaung’s behaviour in the strongest terms possible. We wish to convey our unreserved apologies that this unfortunate incident occurred,” the statement reads.

Eskom said the hearing, which was due to recommence on Monday, would now be postponed until a new evidence leader was appointed. They said they expected the process to take up to three days to finalise.
