will be interesting to see if the eff will help pay for the 1.5 she owes....
OK so lets say he knows he will have to pay back the 10 mil, he sells off the properties and "looses" the monye, I assume that will be a criminal matter?
Talking very generally they can "undo" the transactions. And, no, I do not believe the EFF will help her pay. They are battling to meet their own costs orders, not to mention the R500k plus costs they owe Trevor Manuel for defamation.

I don't know who "they" are so will just go with the dictionary definition, ie:
, verb 1. want something to happen or be the case.
And just "hope" that that's not in vain :lol:

His portfolio is worth 3 times more than R10 million - not bad for a person who worked in a SOE for 1 year and 7 months. I wonder what CEO in a private company would get R30 million pension for less than 2 years employment.
I think Whitey Basson got more. edit... then again I must read, lol, he worked far longer than 2 years :roll:
Whitey Basson was earning +-R50 million per year at the end - but he deserved it - he made that outfit what it is today. Length of time isn't that relevant. It seems easy when these guys do it but it isn't easy. Good example is Pick 'n Pay . Raymond Ackerman built that up into a behemoth of a retail company. Since he retired all they've managed to with it is tread water. Whitey Basson earned what he was paid.
Agreed, submitted a paper on Basson's 2010 earnings last night, R627 million for the year :shock:

Well seen as salaries in the private sector are at least three times higher than in the state sector, probably lots.

In the private sector share options can also play a major role in building wealth. Given that the SOE's are 100% owned by govt as the shareholder maybe (speculating) that avenue is covered by bonuses (for screwing things up :evil: ).

As an aside: the possibility of folk accumulating irregular wealth is why it's critical that all of the "heavyweights" in the public sector (including SOE's) should be subjected to regular lifestyle audits [-o<

I'm no fan of Molefe but AFAIK he's worked (ha ha) all his life in the public sector. One of his gripes is that when he transferred to Eskom his pensionable amount or whatever was transferred from his previous apointment to his last mentioned one. Clearly that claim was rejected all the way to the Concourt. But in essence what I'm saying (without in any way defending what I consider the indefensible) is that the amounts weren't just for a few month's work.

R4 million was transferred from Railways to the Escom pension fund for him.
