We are basically suing everybody, starting with President Jacob Zuma and all the Ministers involved, the Guptas and their affiliates which have been involved in the plunder of Eskom ....

This is a court case which we are fighting is on behalf of South Africa, it's a civil case. We basically saying we want to reclaim the money that has been stolen on behalf of South Africa.

Wierzycka says they have submitted about 800 pages of evidence to the and they are expecting this case to be concluded within a year.

She says the reason Bank of Baroda in South Africa is cooperating with the courts is the its office in India has been putting pressure to to cooperate with authorities.

The Guptas have accounted for 80% of business of Bank of Baroda in South Africa.

Wierzycka aslo spoke about the new Eskom board saying the appointment Jabu Mabuza as Eskom’s new chairperson was a fantastic move.

Magda Wierzycka, CEO of Sygnia

I think he is going to move fast to try and stabilise that entity ...
