At what point does he realise it'd be cheaper to just give back the money. He does have all the money he got from the Guptas for helping them capture transnet and then Eskom. Is it very hard for these state capture beneficiaries to spend their loot that they'll fight for change when they made many more millions. Even Duduzane is supposed to have made at least a billion.
Pretty sure the mentality is use the millions to fight for the millions if he is going to lose it anyway.

These guys live such opulent lifestyles, that their millions are your thousands - and remember, he is basically "unemployable", so he needs the money, not to mention how many bribes he is still paying etc.

If he gives back the money would that not come with some kind of admission of guilt and an Affidavit?

If the Cosa Nostra faction of the ANC have it their way, he might even become Minister of Finance

Nothing but a thieving ****, but 57% of those that voted are happy with this type of behaviour. Amandla! Aloota continua!

He did not steal the money, Eskom gave it to him when they were deep in the Guptas pocket.

Don't try to whitewash history. The whole pension saga was riddled with perjury, corruption and fraud (i.e. theft). See: https://www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2019-08-07-eskom-pension-scam-molefe-must-pay-back-the-money/

Edit: Paying back the money is only the start of his problems. He still faces criminal charges for all of those actions.
I am not trying to whitewash anything, just answering the question as it was posed, him paying the money back is not an admission of anything, that's all, whatever follows after this won't be as a result of him paying back the money.

Well, one can put most of everything under a broad umbrella of "stealing". So, I am not sure if there is a need to have words like corruption, fraud, accounting irregularities etc. What Brian Molefe did was probably similar to what Jooste, hlaudi did i.e. take undue advantage of situation in a corrupt & fraudulent way?

So, other crooks giving you permission makes it all right? Wow, no wonder our politicians think they can steal everything.
yeah, let someone else steal it for you and give it to you. then just play dumb about the source. conscience clean, job well done.
