Parliament’s Public Enterprises Committee inquiring into Eskom‘s corporate governance is being briefed on the purchase of the Optimum coal mine.

Eskom‘s suspended Chief Financial Officer, Anoj Singh,  earlier claimed that the power utility had provided Absa with a R1.1 guarantee in favour of Tegeta so that it could purchase Optimum mine.

Tegeta is controlled by the Gupta family and President Jacob Zuma’s son, Duduzane Zuma.
