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.

Almost 100 have been shown the door at Eskom, but sadly no arrests.
