Eskom`s defective leadership and their dodgy deals have converted a national asset into a national embarrassment

26 June 2017

The reports that an audit report by KPMG reveals that Eskom sneaked an inflated advance payment of R600m to Chinese firm Dongfang for a controversial R4bn tender to supply a new boiler at its Duvha power station in Mpumalanga, shows that Eskom has become a national embarrassment instead of a national asset. If these reports are proven to be true, COSATU wants all board members and senior managers at Eskom to be asked to step down and then they must be investigated and prosecuted if necessary.
