Cape Town – Parliament is starting its inquiry into Eskom on Tuesday – a week before the legislature officially reopens - with a briefing from two civil society groups, which did their own investigations into state capture allegations.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) and the South African Council of Churches (SACC) will brief MPs of the portfolio committee on public enterprises on the contents of their own reports, showing how President Jacob Zuma, some Cabinet ministers and officials of state-owned entities facilitated the plundering of the parastatals to the benefit of his son Duduzane and the Gupta family and their associates.

The SACC recently released the report, Unburdening, which revealed the many ways in which powerful groups and individuals aligned to Zuma allegedly helped loot state institutions, among them Eskom.
