AmaBhungane prove multi-million rand payout from Eskom to Gupta- linked Trillian

According to EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides, AmaBhungane has confirmed that they have proof that Gupta-owned Trillian invoiced Eskom R419 million over nine months in 2016.

Nicolaides says when Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown answered questions in Parliament about contracts between Trillian and Eskom, Trillian had already invoiced Eskom R266-million.

Minister Brown at the time denied any concluded contracts between Trillian and Eskom.
