Democratic Alliance (DA) will on Monday lay criminal charges against reinstated Eskom Chief Executive Officer, Matshele Koko.
This takes after affirmed steps were taken by the Power Utility, clearing Koko of wrongdoing and along these lines gave him his job back, in spite of being “vigorously” involved in lucrative multi-million rands contracts.
DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprise Natasha Mazzone said in a statement on Friday since the Power Utility and Minister of Public Enterprises, Lynne Brown are unequipped for holding the seemingly caught and intensely involved Koko to account, it is up to the Hawks to investigate the matter.
Not long ago said Mazzone, it became exposed that Koko purportedly granted lucrative Eskom contracts, worth R1 billion, to Impulse International, an organisation connected to his stepdaughter.
She added that Koko was likewise evidently associated with supporting an R650 million advance from Eskom to Gupta-connected Tegeta, keeping in mind the end goal to guarantee that the Guptas acquired Optimum.
“It is very evident that this disciplinary hearing was never intended to investigate this genuine charges brought against Koko, however, it was somewhat a move to have him restored. The hearing has been an entire and supreme sham from start to finish. Koko was professedly counseled on the arrangement of the director for his own disciplinary hearing,” said Mazzone.
As indicated by Mazzone there were additional reports of key witnesses having neglected to show up as a result of terrorizing and control, that there had been enormous postponements, and the underlying confirmation pioneer Sebetja Matsaung was supplanted as he seemed not well arranged and incapable.
“The DA will keep on fighting against the catch of Eskom. The administrators and administration at Eskom are not genuine about finding defilement. On the off chance that they were, Koko would not have been permitted back at the power utility,” added Mazzone
