Eskom rejects inquiry bribe allegations

I have never met or spoken to Bongo, says Khoza

Eskom’s Interim Chairman Zethembe Khoza rejects with contempt allegations that he had instructed the then ordinary ANC MP Bongani Bongo to offer parliamentary inquiry evidence leader Advocate Ntuthuzelo Vanara a bribe to collapse the investigation into the alleged capture of Eskom.

“I have never spoken to Bongo, and I have never met him,” said Mr Khoza.

In a statement on Monday, Khoza said Eskom supported the parliamentary inquiry, and that electricity parastatal had previously written to the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises expressing its willingness to give evidence before the committee once the process got underway

“I have absolutely no reason why I, or Eskom, would want to collapse the inquiry when we have been calling for such a legally-constituted platform so that we can place facts before the committee.” said Khoza.

The Committee will meet on Wednesday [29 November 29] to deliberate on the work that the inquiry has conducted.

The Committee has made an application to hear witnesses on the week of 5 – 8 December 2017.
