Looks like Matshela Koko is still running the show - Karima Brown

The disciplinary hearing against suspended Eskom Acting CEO Matshela Koko underwent a second false start on Monday after it emerged that the newly appointed chair of the hearing would not be available for most of the week.

Koko was suspended for failing to declare a conflict of interest while awarding a multi-million-rand contract to a company his step-daughter was involved in.

Eskom says the various parties will check their availability and decide on a time to continue the hearing.

Political analyst Karima Brown says the utility is delaying the inevitable.

Of course it looks like he is still running the show, in fact he is the one that objected to Eskom using white lawyers and apparently that is what he rocked up with at the disciplinary hearing yesterday.

Karima Brown, political analyst

A set of bizarre developments there. We have just got explanations that make every little sense, what you are seeing here is an attempt to delay the inevitable.

Meanwhile Tuesday sees the parliamentary portfolio committee on Public Enterprises kick off its inquiry into Eskom.
