She says there is overwhelming evidence that there was "dodgy dealings" going on between McKinsey, Gupta-linked company Trillian and Eskom dating back to 2013.

It's emerged that the international firm was warned of the risks associated Trillian four years ago but ignored them in order to secure a massive contract with Eskom.

McKinsey SA executives warned McKinsey USA executives that there was something seriously amiss with deals going on. This was ignored.

Mazzone says police officials have given her a case number and she has written Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the Unites States for them to investigate.

Meanwhile, watchdog Corruption Watch is also pursuing charges against McKinsey in the U.S.
