Chris Yelland, energy analyst says embattled Eskom executive Matshela Koko’s testimony during the Eskom injury was deflecting.
He is a very polished speaker and presents well but his evidence has followed the same line of it wasn’t me and I don’t remember and accusations to other people.— Chris Yelland, energy analyst
Koko was testifying before Parliament's inquiry into state capture at the utility.
Yelland says Koko’s behavior has made it difficult to see through the complex web of accusations.
Koko has said that he was suspended from the power utility due to his refusal to pay out an illegal contract.
The embattled Eskom executive says he's always been a loyal employee of the organisation and he won't resign.
Yelland said Koko has been at Eskom for more than 20 years and has a lot to lose.
He has a lot to lose, whether he is fired or whether he resigns. He also has a career ahead of him so he has a reputation to protect.— Chris Yelland, energy analyst
