Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown has acknowledged serious allegations of maladministration and corruption lodged against Eskom.
Speaking to power producers at the Power-Gen Africa Conference in Johannesburg on Tuesday, Brown said she's had to question the veracity of the answers given to her by Eskom's board and management in recent months.
Several investigations into the the parastatal, as well as some of it's executives are still underway.
Gia Nicolaides is at the conference.
She has actually acknowledged here in front of some of the power producers across the Continent - while saying that a lot of these allegations are still under investigation, and that she is limited on what she can say - but has noted the need for all of this to be addressed in order for Eskom to continue on this path of producing electricity not just for South Africa but for Africa.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
An announcement on the parastatal's financial status is expected to be made on Wednesday.
