Embattled chief generation officer Matshela Koko has resigned from Eskom‚ a spokesperson said on Friday.

Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe confirmed Koko’s resignation.

In his resignation letter‚ Koko stated that the resignation was not an admission of guilt‚ according to Fin 24.

Koko had returned to the power utility after being acquitted in a disciplinary hearing that was largely seen as a “sham”.

He had been accused of being involved in awarding contracts worth R1-billion to a company in which his stepdaughter held a stake.
