Chancellor House Holdings, the investment arm of the ANC, has admitted that the ruling party is a beneficiary of a trust that owns the company outright - after years controversy over Chancellor’s valuable stakes in government linked deals. 

This includes Hitachi Power Africa, now Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Africa, that was awarded a R20 billion deal in 2007 to build all six boilers at Eskom’s Kusile and Medupi power stations.
