EWN Reporter, Lindsay Dentlinger says Eskom hasn't really answered the question why it chose Tegeta over other companies.

Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe told Parliament on Tuesday that he only joined the parastatal after it had already signed a contract with the Gupta-owned coal company Tegeta.

EWN Reporter, Lindsay Dentlinger says the big question is how Tegeta got this contract above other companies, but Eskom is not answering that question directly.

He says he is turning this around looking for more BEE compliant bits and opening up their bidding process to be more competitive.
