Necsa proposes to reappoint its fired CEO as a highly-paid consultant

The Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa (Necsa) is proposing to reappoint its suspended and subsequently fired former CEO Phumzile Tshelane as a highly-paid consultant to the state-owned enterprise.

This has emerged following a Necsa board meeting on 28 May, where the board authorised its chairman, David Nicholls, to approach the minister of minerals and energy, Gwede Mantashe, to seek the reappointment of Tshelane as a consultant to Necsa on a limited-term contract.

When asked for comment, Minister Mantashe indicated that he is not a member of the Necsa board and is unaware of the details. However, he confirmed that the proposed reappointment was raised with him on 29 May by the Necsa chairman, and that a meeting to address the matter has been scheduled for this week.
It simply means one thing, they know he will be stuck to them like a Peter Moyo if they don't make a deal.
Mantashe, of course there'll be shenanigans..
With all the lock-downs and even in normal times 6 months timeline is very optimistic if not impossible in SA.

This is how I see it.
Basically he had to go but was so corrupt that could not get golden handshake.
His buddies that are still there are dirty too so this is some sort of payment for silence.

The more things change to more they stay the same.
Being buddy buddy with coal is bad enough. But our nukes? Geez, you know it's bad when the Chernobyl peeps would look at us and cringe.
You got a list of people who voted for that, take that as reason for dismissal (facilitating corruption).
Of course nothing will happen.
