Eskom’s Gert Opperman and Johann Bester have corroborated some of the testimony that has already been heard at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
The state capture inquiry resumed on Friday morning with more testimony from Eskom officials.
The inquiry has been hearing evidence on the corruption and mismanagement at the power utility for three weeks now.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela was at the commission.
Gert Opperman is the one that has been taking the stand since early this morning and what he has done is corroborate some of the testimony that has been presented by Snehal Nagar and Eskom's treasurer.
