Brian Molefe defends Eskom's Ingula, says Carte Blanche is 'disingenuous'

Eskom CEO Brian Molefe has accused Carte Blanche of being disingenuous in a report alleging that Eskom exceeded their budget on Ingula plant by more than R27 billion.

The report also alleged that more than double was paid towards the Kwa-Zulu Natal hydro-power contract.

This comes after Eskom said they were not given a right of reply in the documentary after it was aired on Sunday evening. However, the producer of the show (Joy Summers) claims that Eskom initially agreed to an interview but changed their mind once production was being completed.

While it remains unclear where the differences between the two are, Eskom insists that it pulled out of the interview because they requested a live interview which would be unedited.

Listen to comments by Summers and Molefe below:

It is unfortunate that Carte Blanche chose to publish a hopelessly inaccurate story on a matter they could have found the facts from Eskom, and they didn't.

Brian Molefe, Eskom CEO

Brian Molefe and Eskom still have to answer serious questions. We have asked them to come on Carte Blanche, there's nothing wrong with that and they have declined to do that.
