Clement Manyathela interviews Eskom spokesperson Sikhonathi Mantshansha.

Eskom overpaid an unnamed contractor by about R4 billion, longsuffering South Africans found out this week.

Parliament’s Standing Committee on Appropriations wants the ailing power producer to explain the payment.

The contractor accepts that it was overpaid, and Eskom is trying to get the money back.
