And former Eskom board chairperson Zola Tsotsi confirmed that Linell attended the meeting at Zuma’s residence in KwaZulu-Natal where Myeni was in charge and Linell was appointed as a consultant.
Linell also drafted a board resolution for the Eskom board to institute an inquiry and suspend executives.
But that same board would later move for a vote of no confidence in Tsotsi on grounds, including Linell’s irregular appointment.
