It has emerged that Anoj Singh, Eskom’s suspended CFO, allowed billions in public money to slip into the Guptas’ pockets while being paid for his service in an offshore account.
amaBhungane and Scorpio have revealed that the Guptas opened a shell company for Singh in a highly secretive United Arab Emirates jurisdiction while he was at Transnet. In return, the controversial family received billions in kickbacks.
Singh was suspended from Eskom in July but details of the investigation and the charges he faces are yet to be disclosed.
Evidence in the Gupta leaks shows that Singh has a long-standing relationship with the Guptas, who allegedly bankrolled at least six Dubai trips for him and his alleged mistress.
In July, when Singh presented Eskom's financial results, he told the media he was working on a "tell-all" document to explain his trips to Dubai and insisted he's not corrupt.
That document has not yet been released.
Singh has since been placed on special leave pending an investigation.
The Democratic Alliance and civil rights group Outa have laid criminal charges against Singh.
Three Eskom-commissioned investigations and another by the National Treasury indicate he has a case to answer to.
