The inquiry will involve the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) and a retired judge who will deal with the SIU’s findings and recommend further action.

Brown told journalists during a briefing at Parliament that inquiry will be wider than the previous investigations, reports EWN's Gaye Davis.

She made it very clear that the the inquiry she is launching is broader than the allegations detailed in Thuli Madonsela's State of Capture report released last year.

The inquiry is expected to review the reports of seven investigations carried out so far into Eskom, including the State of Capture report, and to conduct further investigations if necessary.

Brown says that based on the recommendations of the inquiry, she will go to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for further action.
