Cape Town – Mark Pamensky was appointed to the Eskom board three months after joining the board of Gupta-owned Oakbay Resources and Energy, Eskom revealed on Tuesday.

The Eskom website describes Pamensky as group operations officer of Blue Label Telecoms, which he isn’t, while there is no mention of him being a director at Oakbay, which he is, BizNews publisher Alec Hogg disclosed on Tuesday.

Fin24 checked both Eskom and Oakbay's websites, which confirm he is an independent non-executive director on Eskom and Oakbay's boards. Eskom's website said he has "experience in effecting turnaround strategies".
