The managing director of Econ Oil, Nothemba Mlonzi, has admitted in court papers to acting "improperly, if not corruptly" in interfering with the award of a multibillion-rand fuel oil tender, according to an affidavit by Eskom CEO André de Ruyter.

De Ruyter's court papers, filed in Eskom's ongoing review of an October 2019 tender award of which Econ was assigned the lion's share of a R14 billion, five-year fuel oil supply deal, set out in detail why Eskom believes the award should be set aside.
