Johannesburg – Eskom has filed court papers at the Western Cape High Court, against the Democratic Alliance (DA) over “defamatory” statements the party made against the power utility and acting chief executive, Matshela Koko.

This follows a report titled "DA to PAIA R27 million Eskom report", by MP Natasha Mazzone which was published on January 31, 2017.

It labels Eskom as being “entangled in a web of lies, contradictions and inaccuracies”. It also takes aim at Koko, saying he is among those within the top ranks implicated in corruption.
