Johannesburg – A commission of inquiry into Eskom is long overdue, according to the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA).

The civil body issued a statement on Sunday in which it commended the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) for opposing Eskom’s demand for a higher tariff increase, than the 2.2% allowed under the current Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD) process. 

“We are appalled that Eskom has sighted current ‘hardships’ as the reason for requesting a much higher increase,” said Ted Blom, OUTA’s portfolio director on energy matters. He added that these hardships are self-inflicted and exist due to poor leadership, as was revealed in the Dentons report released last week.
