Eskom refuse to make public the Dentons report into load shedding
Eskom says it is too dangerous to release the Dentons report because it contains names of people implicated.
Eskom chairperson, Baldwin Ngubane, says the report will only be made available to those implicated within it.
Dentons investigated reasons behind load shedding in the country and looked into reasons for the delayed infrastructure build.
The probe, which cost Eskom R20 million, was launched by global law firm Dentons in 2015.
Some sections of the report are being implemented already, they say.

Deputy editor at Financial Mail, Sikhonathi Mantshantsha, says he has seen the report and it reveals how Eskom executives abuse their positions to give business to their families and relatives.
He says he understands the names of those implicated have been removed so questions why it is not being released to the public.
