The state capture commission of inquiry is starting to hear evidence related to South African state-owned firm Eskom, including several corrupt cases.
The first witness will be Eskom chair Jabu Mabuza. Then several other implicated people at Eskom, whistle-blowers and other persons, including the CEO of Optimum Coal Mine, would be testifying.
As the evidence leader Advocate Isaac Maleka points out, the commission will introduce a South African energy company Eskom as one of the first state-owned entities for this part of the testimony:
“We do so because of the fundamental importance of Eskom; not only in relation to our economy but also to the huge procurement budget that it has, and which was the target.” he added.
All the reports done on Eskom would be presented to the inquiry’s legal team during the week.
