Investigative journalist with Times Media Group, Sabelo Skiti joined host Eusebius McKasier to make sense of how, state owned power utility, Eskom and some of its employees got embroiled in the state capture project.
Eskom's chief financial officer, Anoj Singh was placed on special leave pending an investigation on Thursday.
Who is Anoj Singh, you may ask?
Skiti describes Singh as an enabler, adding that you are unlikely to see him at a press conference or spot his name on a press statement but is a key figure in securing Eskom's deals.

Skiti says Singh jumped to prominence when he was appointed to Transnet in mid 2012.
We didn't know a lot about Singh before the #GuptaLeaks adds Skiti.
Skiti goes on to say that because of the structure of corruption in South Africa, investigating a chief financial officer is not something investigating journalists are prone to doing because they are assumed to be the people to resist, identify and flag any corruption within their organisations.
By the end of 2015, Singh had made his fifth trip to Dubai and was deep within the Gupta pockets says Skiti.
After Singh's arrival at Eskom, Tegeta receives and signs a very lucrative R4.billion contract to supply coal. He makes sure the contract remains, but he also ensures these guys' demands for ramping up off production gets approved. These guys deliver one batch in a month and then suddenly get an increase from 65 000 tons to over 100 000 tons.— Sabelo Skiti, Investigative journalist, Times Media Group
