Eskom's board has received a letter of concern from a group of Eskom employees over 'governance failures', as well as the reinstatement of Matshela Koko and Prish Govender saying this poses a risk to the utility.
Koko was accused of awarding contracts to a company linked to his stepdaughter. Govender faced charges for allegedly playing a role in the Trillian debacle but both were cleared of any wrongdoing. Govender was identified as someone who played a central role in the Trillian debacle which also involved consulting firm McKinsey.
