It would make sense for Zuma to bring him back after the failed Finance Minister plan.

Zuma has Gigaba at Treasury and Molefe at Eskom. Everything is going to plan for the Russians, Chinese and Gupta contracts.

Well it's a perfect plan B. He gets to continue manipulating deals towards the Gupta's and will cost Eskom and taxpayers far, far more than R30m. They need someone to channel the massive uranium deals to the Gupta's if they ever get the nuclear deal on the road and in the mean time he can keep on channelling the overpriced lucrative coal deals their way.

IMHO the Optimum Coal mine deal was outright fraud - he virtually put them out of business by cancelling their contract at the last minute for no good reason allowing the mining concern to be snapped up for a song by the Gupta's at which point they were instantly awarded a lucrative deal at inflated BEE supplier coal rates. This was in the same period he was visiting the Gupta "shebeen" regularly. And that's only the crooked deal that we know about.

Please don't beat me to death... but didn't he not do to bad a job (in relative terms) at Eskom?

I know there were a lot of questionable Gupta deals, but the 'power crisis' disappeared before he cried his way out of the door. I forget what this man's sins was again... there are too many to keep track of... can someone give me a summary again please just so that I can be up to speed why we're hating him again?

also, there was no real power crisis, it was manufactured to force price increases

During his time, Eskom Power Station costs have escalated by R177 billion, I would say he left a bigger crisis.

If a 9600 MW nuclear power plant is estimated to cost R800 billion, it means in reality it will escalate by 3 to 5 times the budget amount. Brian is there to make sure that happens because it will benefit Russians, Chinese and Gupta ANC links.

No he didn't.

The power crisis "disappeared" because demand for power dropped, he didn't "fix" that problem. He has left numerous problems behind him whilst at the helm of Eskom.
