Quiet, certain, with minutes to smile and laugh, previous Eskom manager Brian Molefe yesterday got back to the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, where he kept on taking swipes at
President Cyril Ramaphosa for the job he played as seat of Switzerland-possessed Optimum Coal
Mine (OCM) – contracted to supply coal to the force utility.
Affirming before Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, Molefe emphasized that Ramaphosa's political clout in the ANC was utilized by OCM as influence in its dealings with Eskom, which included
extreme arrangements on the coal supply contract (CSA).

Weapons blasting, Molefe disliked commission proof pioneer advocate Pule Seleka, for not referencing claims he made during his prior declaration about Ramaphosa's job – apparently dismissing charges he made during a recap.
"I trust that it isn't being hidden where no one will think to look," said Molefe, who was consoled by Zondo that each declaration made by witnesses was recorded.
Molefe recently revealed to Zondo that the Glencore-possessed OCM offered offers to Ramaphosa – a technique
to get him arrange a more exorbitant cost in its CSA with Eskom.
Ramaphosa, who was OCM seat until he became appointee president in May 2014, was in charge of the organization when OCM provided coal to Eskom's Hendrina power station – valued from R142 to R442 per ton.

As far as OCM shareholding, Glencore-possessed Purito BV had 67.58% offers and Ramaphosa's
Lexshell 849 had 9.64%.
Zondo heard how, in 2013, OCM gave a difficulty notice and started a difficulty guarantee against
Eskom, notwithstanding the force utility encountering its own difficulties.
