AmaBhungane prove multi-million rand payout from Eskom to Gupta- linked Trillian

18 May 2017 1:15 PM
This comes after Minister Brown denied any concluded contracts between Eskom and Gupta-linked financial advisory group, Trillian.

According to EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides, AmaBhungane has confirmed that they have proof that Gupta-owned Trillian invoiced Eskom R419 million over nine months in 2016.

Nicolaides says when Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown answered questions in Parliament about contracts between Trillian and Eskom, Trillian had already invoiced Eskom R266-million.

Minister Brown at the time denied any concluded contracts between Trillian and Eskom.

It looks like there's a direct link going from Eskom to Trillian and of course Tegeta which needed funds to buy Optimum mine.
