Cape Town – The much talked-about Financial Mail cover story on Thursday that publishes details from several versions of Eskom’s Dentons investigation paints the power utility as rotting from within.

The feature comes after Eskom called a press conference this week to publicly release a diluted version of Dentons' investigative report, which was commissioned by Eskom in 2015 to look into the causes of load shedding, its financial crisis and the new build delays. It is believed the presser was to off-set the Financial Mail feature.

However, Eskom then changed its mind at the last minute after legal opinion and said members of the public needed to apply to read the report. News24 applied and received the diluted report this week, which identified serious cause for concern regarding the manner in which Eskom awarded contracts for the supply of diesel and coal, among other shortcomings.
