Cape Town – A hearing focusing on coal supply agreements between Eskom and Tegeta will return to Parliament on Tuesday, two days after emails allegedly linking the Guptas to state officials and ministers were leaked to the media.

On May 10, Parliament’s standing committee on public accounts (Scopa) heard how Eskom’s contract with Gupta-owned Tegeta Exploration and Resources for the supply of coal contained discrepancies, was poorly drafted and was in contravention of supply chain management procedures.

This was according to a report done by PricewaterhouseCoopers, which Scopa will continue to discuss on Tuesday.
