City Press has seen documents that give a clue of how Eskom Group Chief Executive Officer André de Ruyter fell out with former chief procurement officer, Solly Tshitangano, who was vehemently fighting irregular procurement. The documents, we believe, are part of Tshitangano’s affidavit to the Select Committee on Public Accounts about corruption at Eskom.
