Eskom’s former Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Tshediso Matona will be giving evidence relating to allegations of corruption which have plaqued the State Owned Enterprise (soe) at the Commission of enquiry chaired by Deputy Judge Ray Zondo on Monday.
He left the power utility as Eskom’s CEO in 2015 after seven months of service following a suspension.
During that time as a CEO at Eskom, Matona signed off coal contracts some of which were linked to the Guptas.
Today, he is to tell the Commission reasons which led to his suspension and what allegations were levelled against him.
The former CEO was at the helm at which time the Gupta owned newspaper, called, the New Age secured R43 million deal from the financially crippled power utility.
