Eskom could consider instituting private prosecutions against individuals linked to state capture and corruption at the company if the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) doesn’t soon show visible progress in various cases referred to it.  

Frustration has been building over the last six months inside of Eskom that the NPA is not moving efficiently and swiftly enough to exact accountability from alleged criminals. This is echoed by officials at some law enforcement agencies who privately say that they hoped the NPA would by now have acted against the big players and some big companies also implicated.
