On Monday, Eskom’s Interim Chairman, Zethembe Khoza, rejected with contempt the allegations involving him in a bribe to close the Eskom Inquiry.

Eye Witness reported that “it’s alleged Bongo was told to bribe evidence leader Nthuthuzelo Vanara to collapse the investigation into the alleged capture of Eskom.”
