The portfolio committee on public enterprises, tasked with the inquiry into governance and procurement at Eskom, must still finalise the terms of reference for the probe.

Committee chair Zukiswa Rantho said she is aware that it is faced with a mammoth task and called for added legal resources to help it do an efficient and effective job.
