The report is the outcome of the Eskom commission of inquiry and names many private individuals as being involved in unduly influencing the power utility.
A report adopted by Parliament’s Public Enterprises committee on Wednesday, 28 November 2018 has detailed evidence of “undue influence” by private individuals on Eskom.
Duduzane Zuma, Atul Gupta and Ashu Chawla were some of the private individuals implicated in the parliamentary report. They are said to have influenced decision-making at the power utility.
The committee wants Dudu Myeni, Jacob Zuma, Rajesh Gupta, Atul Gupta and Ajay Gupta to appear before the Zondo commission of inquiry into State Capture.
The report suggests that the group should face disciplinary action from the Speaker of the National Assembly for not attending sittings at the commission of inquiry when called upon.
Eskom board chairs Zola Tsotsi, Ben Ngubane, Matshela Koko, former interim board chair Zethembe Khoza, former CEO Brian Molefe, former CFO Anoj Singh, former acting CEO Sean Maritz and former board members Pat Naidoo and Devapushpum Naidoo, are also expected to “present their versions at the commission”.
The committee spent a lot of time on the investigation and are pleased with the report.
“This is a report that the committee can be proud of. The manner in which this was done is indicative of the fact that we are not doing things behind closed doors,” said Committee member for the Democratic Alliance Natasha Mazzone.
