Cape Town - The redacted Dentons report that Eskom sent News24 this week hints at major issues without naming any executives or companies. Take a look at 10 examples of the report that have been redacted:

5 to 8: The following four extracts from a section titled: "The causes of Eskom's financial challenges":

9. The below graph is from a section on "Causes for increase in primary energy costs":

10. The below comes from an annexure titled: "Conflicts of interest":
