Public Enterprises Minister, Lynne Brown has instructed Eskom to begin taking legal steps with regards to the Trillian report.
Brown has demanded answers and the power utility handed over a report to her earlier this month which included additional information on deals with the Gupta family.
The minister wants to know why Eskom lied about payments of R1.6 billion to Trillian and consultancy company, McKinsey.
EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides, who has been following the story, tells The Midday Report stand-in host, Ray White that at this stage it unclear who will face charges.
Eskom's CFO Anoj Singh and suspended acting CEO Matshela Koko have been placed on leave pending investigations, she says.

Nicolaides explains that after Brown received her report she criticised Eskom for being tardy in its response. Yet on Thursday, Brown released a statement saying she was pleased with the progress and instructed the power utility to complete necessary preliminary steps before communication.
