Officials at the inquiry into state capture at Eskom were unimpressed by Dudu Myeni's absence on Wednesday.
The inquiry resumed in Parliament without the former SAA board member, who sent a WhatsApp message informing officials she would not be attending.
EWN reporter Lindsay Dentlinger joined Bongani Bingwa for the latest on the inquiry.
Certainly they weren't very happy. Firstly, that she wasn't there and secondly in the way that she communicated that she wasn't coming.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
They'd written her a letter some time ago, so it wasn't as if she was asked at the last minute.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
Myeni is appearing alongside suspended Eskom executive Abram Masango.
On Wednesday, Masango told the inquiry that former acting Eskom CEO Matshela Koko started to intimidate him when it emerged he was a whistleblower.
He said it was when he wrote his report [on corruption at Eskom] that Koko started to make life difficult for him. He also said that Koko was the one who introduced him to a former Trillian executive with links to the Guptas.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
He said Koko was behaving in a 'mafia style' by removing Masango's phone from him at the meeting.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
The inquiry is next week expected to call former Minister of Public Enterprises, Malusi Gigaba, to testify.
