Treasury has hit back at Eskom's suggestion that there is a motive behind their probe into the national power utility's coal contracts with Tegeta.
In an interview on The John Robbie Show with Treasury chief procurement officer, Kenneth Brown, he said that while other companies had cooperated fully throughout the probe, the Gupta-owned Tegeta has remained uncooperative.
Tegeta was allegedly paid R130-million by Eskom for sub-standard coal.
The two entities have recently been embroiled in a public spat, with Treasury accusing the national power utility of blocking a probe into the coal contracts with the Gutpa-owned company.
