Eskom issues court papers to recover millions from Deloitte

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Eskom says it has issued court papers and filed an affidavit against Deloitte Consulting in an attempt to recover over R200 million.

It has also filed papers against former Eskom CFO Anoj Singh and former senior executive Prish Govender.

Eskom says it believes contracts were irregularly awarded to Deloitt in 2016. The affidavit further calls for Singh and Govender to pay the costs of the application.

Eskom’s Acting Group Chief Executive Jabu Mabuza says Deloitte engaged in activities that were unfair, inequitable, non-transparent and uncompetitive using off-the-record briefings with Eskom officials.

Eskom says it will continue to work with the SIU, the Hawks and law enforcement to root out corruption and recover stolen funds.

Two weeks ago, the struggling power utility presented its annual report to Parliament.
