Eskom CEO Brian Molefe says if he has been captured, it was by the Constitution and not the Gupta family.

Molefe was responding to questions from Members of Parliament (MPs) about Eskom’s relationship with the Gupta-linked company Tegeta and allegations of preferential treatment.

Earlier this week, Treasury said it had met with resistance from Eskom over its review of contracts but Eskom denied this, saying all the required documents were submitted by close of business on Tuesday.

Molefe, flanked by board chairperson Ben Ngubane and Eskom executives, strongly defended the parastatal’s business dealings with the Guptas in Parliament today.

He further claimed that the delay in getting Eskom’s response to Treasury’s questions was because it had asked for them to first go before the board.

However, the Eskom board is due to meet only on 21 September.
