The Middleburg Magistrate’s Court in Mpumalanga is expected to hand down judgment in the application by former Eskom Executive Matshela Koko and nine others to have the fraud, corruption and money laundering case struck off the roll.

This after the State requested that the case be postponed for a further four months, for the conclusion of some of the charges.

Koko and the others are charged for the R2.2 billion corruption at Kusile Power Station.

It is alleged that the former acting Eskom CEO played a role in awarding a contract to a Swiss engineering company and sub-contractors, including a company in which his stepdaughter was a director.

Koko’s wife and stepdaughter are among the accused.
