Another senior official working at Eskom's tainted Group Capital Division, Koena Mogolola, abused her position as a contracts manager at the Kusile power station to benefit from kickbacks at Kusile, including a R190 000 payment facilitated by Mogolola's colleague, from a supplier.

This follows revelations published by News24 that numerous others in Group Capital were either dismissed or resigned following graft allegations against them. The division was responsible for building power stations, including Kusile, and managing large contracts.

The division's chief executive Abram Masango, former senior contracts manager France Hlakudi, former senior contracts manager Dianah Motlou and former contracts manager Mildred Nyoka, among others, received millions in kickbacks from contractors who funded their lavish lifestyles.
