Parliament to write another letter to Myeni, no subpoena yet

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Parliament will write another letter to former South African Airways (SAA) Board Chairperson Dudu Myeni informing her to appear before its inquiry into State Capture at Eskom.

This after Myeni snubbed the Public Enterprises Portfolio Committee on Wednesday.

MPs were particularly disapproving of her decision to communicate with Parliament via SMS.

Myeni will be the second person to be subpoenaed after former deputy Public Enterprises Minister Ben Martins was forced to appear earlier in 2018.

Former Eskom Board Chairperson Zola Tsotsi in 2017 claimed Myeni had told him at a private meeting who should be suspended from the Eskom board.

She was allegedly acting for then President Jacob Zuma.

Meanwhile, Eskom remains at risk of defaulting in the next six months, despite securing R20-billion in short-term funding. This comes shortly after having its long-term local and foreign credit rating downgraded by ratings agency S&P.

The government guaranteed facility will form part of the financing for Eskom’s current capital expenditure programme.
