Molefe says he drives by a particular strip club in Johannesburg, but that doesn’t mean he stops by there all the time.

Eskom CEO Brian Molefe on Thursday described allegations levelled against him in the State of Capture report as groundless.

Molefe says that he could’ve explained Eskom’s deal with Gupta-owned Tegeta if former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela had given him a chance to do so.

The report shows how Molefe regularly contacted the Guptas and visited their Saxonwold home during the acquisition of the Optimum coal mine by Tegeta.

“There's a shebeen there in that area," said Molefe, making light of the cellphone evidence placing him at the Gupta home.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides.
