DA MP Natasha Mazzone explains that a trusted informant at the power utility tipped the party off.
We have a very good source at Eskom who phoned us this morning to let us know that documents were being destroyed relating to the Brian Molefe saga.— Natasha Mazzone, MP and DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises

We need her to give us an undertaking that all documents will be kept safe.— Natasha Mazzone, MP and DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises
The opposition party has released a statement on its website calling for the matter to be investigated to prevent any further documents from being destroyed.
