Eskom's head of generation Matshela Koko says he will report for duty on Monday.

In a statement, released on Monday, Eskom said that its new board accepted the resignation by Singh.

He's instructed the board to remove all executives who are facing corruption allegations, including suspended chief financial officer, Anoj Singh.

The board of Eskom, through the Chairman, has accepted the resignation and communicated the acceptance through Singh's attorneys.

He was placed on special leave in July 2017 and suspended in September. These include transactions with Trillian Capital Partners Ltd., a local partner of USA consulting company McKinsey & Co. that had links to the Guptas, a family of wealthy businessmen working with President Jacob Zuma's son who are alleged to have used their relationship with the leader to win lucrative contracts from state companies.

His resignation comes the eve before he was due to testify at the Parliamentary Eskom Inquiry, which resumed this week.

Eskom is "an organization with deep-rooted problems that have evolved over years" and it would be a mistake "to allow the inquiry to be hijacked by one narrative of one family", Singh said in his submission.

Outa chief executive, Wayne Duvenage, said that the appointment of the new board and the resumption this week of the inquiry into Eskom by the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises signal the start of an entirely new energy and the renewal of Eskom. According to Rantho, Singh, who had six-months to prepare his documents, submitted a 400-page bundle to the committee at 23:00 the night before he was supposed to appear.
