Eskom report found in a hidden vault at Eskom

When Eskom suspended its chief executive and three other execs during load-shedding in March 2015, the state entity called for a high-level investigation into its operations.

According to FM's Deputy Editor, Sikonathi Mantshantsha, the findings were expected to have been made public but were instead locked away in a secret vault by Eskom's board.

[At the time,] I asked Lynne Brown, Minister of Public Enterprises, in front of Ben Ngubane (Eskom Chairman): "Minister, can you tell us, where is the report? What happened to it? What did it find? When are you publishing it?" I was told that the report was inadequate, was the board's report and mentioned people's names negatively. This means there's something that's being hidden from the public ... It can only concern corruption.

There is one person standing between him (President Zuma) and his ambitions, and that is Pravin Gordhan. Why must you be President if you will not be allowed to put your hand in the cookie jar because some finance minister you appointed but cannot fire is standing in the way!
