Luxury cars, new property and houses, funding for personal business interests, and fees for exclusive schools were some of the items three Eskom executives splurged on thanks to alleged kickbacks to the value of R76.2 million. 

France Hlakudi, a former senior manager for capital contracts, and two former contract managers at the Kusile power station, Mildred Nyoka and Diana Motlou, parked the money in Babinatlou Business Services, a company owned and registered by businessman Hudson Kgomoeswana.
