Myeni, Gupta brothers to miss Eskom’s Inquiry

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Former South African Airways (SAA) Board Chairperson Dudu Myeni and the three Gupta brothers – Atul, Ajay and Rajeesh – will not appear before Parliament’s Eskom Inquiry into allegations of state capture.

Committee Chairperson Zukiswa Rantho says Myeni has cited ill health while the Guptas’ lawyers say they are out of the country.

They were expected to appear before the inquiry on Tuesday.

“We are not going to meet Dudu Myeni because she has sent a letter asking why she has not been given a space so that she gets healed. That she cannot come to the committee. So she has stated her reasons for not coming to the committee about ill health. The Guptas are also not coming to the committee because their lawyers say they are out of the country, so they will not be able to come to the committee.”

Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba is expected to appear on Tuesday before the Eskom parliamentary inquiry into allegations of state capture.

Gigaba is expected to answer questions on allegations of state capture between 2010 and 2014 – the time he was in charge of Public Enterprises. He has been described as the architect of state capture by the EFF.

Rantho explains why, “He needs to come and clarify his role during the time he was minister of Public Enterprises, the procurement processes that were taking place and he has been mentioned by Brian Dames that all the things changed in Eskom when he was a Minster in Public Enterprises.”
