Eskom CEO says almost 100 corrupt officials axed in bid to clean out the rot
Eskom CEO Phakamani Hadebe says internal corruption is the biggest stumbling block to getting international investment.
Eskom appeared before the Public Enterprises Committee in Parliament where the utility was being questioned on its annual report, financial statement and its corporate plan.
Hadebe says 11 criminal cases have been opened against corrupt officials and over 1 000 disciplinary cases have been launched since April, reports EWN's Lindsay Dentlinger.
While almost 100 people have since been fired, there have yet to be any arrests made.
Dentlinger explains what Hadebe outlined about coal shortages, load shedding and efforts to fight corruption.
