Eskom to hand over report to Treasury

30 August 2016 4:39 PM

Eskom's Khulu Phasiwe speaks to Xolani Gwala about whether the utility send a report to Treasury as instructed by the Public Enterprise Minister.

Eskom says it is to deliver its 172-page document related to a coal contract with Tegeta to National Treasury by 5pm.

Speaking to 702's Xolani Gwala, Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe says that the decision was made this morning after a meeting between the power utility and Public Enterprises Minister, Lynne Brown.

Eskom and National Treasury have been at odds over documentation relating to the coal contract with the Gupta-owned Tegeta company.

The Public Enterprises Minister has told Eskom to cooperate with National Treasury and put the matter to bed.

Phasiwe says that Eskom will send Treasury the 172-page document, even though the Eskom board has not seen it.

We will submit the information even though the board has not sat down to formally consider the outcome of the report.

Khulu Phasiwe, Eskom spokesperson

The board tender committee has seen the document, but the full board hasn't really seen the document... We will be giving them the information... we will be giving it to Treasury
