Cape Town – Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown will launch a full-scale investigation into Eskom, with the assistance of the Special Investigative Unit (SIU) and a retired judge.

The investigation will have a broad scope and will review all seven reports emanating from previous investigations, including the coal procurement processes and the state capture report by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela last year.

“There have been seven reports on Eskom dating back to 2007 into alleged wrongdoing and impropriety,” Brown said, “and I’d like to have a deep dive into these issues.”
