Two people linked to mismanagement and corruption at Eskom tendered their resignation on Thursday.
Former public enterprises minister Lynne Brown resigned as a Member of Parliament while head of information at Eskom, Sean Maritz also handed in his resignation.
Maritz was suspended pending an investigation into a letter he wrote to consultancy firm McKinsey, in which he said that that the contract it had with Eskom was, in fact, lawful, which was contrary to what the utility had stated.
On the other hand, Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane found that Brown misled Parliament when she said Trillian had no contracts with Eskom.
