Cape Town, South Africa — ESI-AFRICA.COM — 24 May 2011 – There are no results to share at present from the Special Investigating Unit’s (SIU’s) investigation into allegations of corruption, fraud and maladministration at South African national power utility Eskom Holdings.
Revealing this here in a written reply to a parliamentary question, justice minister Jeff Radebe confirmed that the unit “’ which had been approached by Eskom earlier this year “’ was investigating a number of concerns at Eskom, which included allegations of corruption, fraud and maladministration.
“As the investigation has only commenced recently, there are no results to share at present,” he added.
In March this year, Eskom announced it had entered into a three-year partnership with the SIU to fight corruption. In a media release at the time, it said the SIU would “deploy a team of expert investigators for a systematic check of all Eskom divisions.”
