The Democratic Alliance (DA) has received approval by Parliament for its request to have implicated Gupta family members and president’s son Duduzane Zuma, appear before the Parliamentary Inquiry into Eskom.
The news follows months of power-plays and pressure-moves by the DA and other opposition parties to hold individuals involved in State Capture rightly accountable.
“We are pleased that the Eskom Inquiry will include summoning of the Guptas, Duduzane Zuma, Brian Molefe, Ben Ngubane and other executives”, read a statement by DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone. “The people of South Africa deserve answers for how public money has been shamefully ransacked and abused at Eskom”.
The interrogations will touch on information derived from the Denton report, Matshela Koko’s alleged nepotism scandal and the Eskom-Tegeta-Optimum Coal deal.
The alleged capture of State Owned Companies has had Eskom at its centre for quite some time and the DA’s approved recommendation could see the final nail in being placed in the coffin of collusive and corrupt government officials.
However, proceedings are set to begin in late July, meaning that anything can still happen.
