Solly Tshitangano, Eskom se afgedankte verkrygingshoof.

Former Eskom chief procurement officer Solly Tshitangano could face criminal and civil charges for his role in awarding R8 billion in contracts to Econ Oil after the power utility became aware of serious allegations of wrongdoing by the company.

Tshitangano's disciplinary hearing chairperson, advocate Nazeer Cassim, submitted his ruling to Eskom after hearing evidence earlier this month. He found that Tshitangano had intentionally acted in the interests of Econ, breaching his common law and fiduciary duties toward Eskom in the process - and recommended that Eskom take "appropriate steps against all those involved improperly in the Econ Oil saga. In particular, legal steps must be taken to recover losses..."

Fin24 reported on Friday that Eskom had served Tshitangano with a letter of dismissal following Cassim's recommendation to do so.
