Cape Town - Eskom executive support manager Anton Minnaar has told Parliament’s inquiry into state capture that former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe was well worth his R30m pension payout, as he helped defeat load shedding.

Minnaar was the first witness to give evidence at the inquiry on Tuesday. 

Asked whether he believed that Molefe should have been given a R30m payout after 18 months at the power utility, Minnaar said it depended on the performance of the individual. 

Minnaar said that Molefe managed to break the back of load shedding under his watch. 

"If he can stop load shedding, I will pay him," Minnaar said. 

The committee will later hear evidence from the Eskom board and the power utility's controversial suspended chief financial officer Anoj Singh.

The question of Molefe's pension payout has been a recurring theme at the inquiry.
