Cape Town - Although Eskom rejected media reports of it facing a cash crisis, the power utility is tight-lipped on bonuses for three of its most controversial former and current executives.

Eskom wants to pay short-term bonuses totalling R5.5m to axed CEO Brian Molefe, suspended acting chief executive Matshela Koko and chief financial officer Anoj Singh, reported the Sunday Times.
