Former deputy secretary general of the national ANC Youth League (ANCYL) and current Limpopo MEC for Sport, Art and Culture, Thandi Moraka, has been identified as yet another recipient of at least R600 000 paid to her by Eskom slush fund Babinatlou Business Services seemingly at the behest of corruption accused former senior Eskom official France Hlakudi. 

While Moraka said she is "not aware of any business dealings" with Hlakudi, law firm Bowmans uncovered an email from Hlakudi to Babinatlou director Hudson Kgomoeswana ordering him to pay R500 000 into Moraka's personal business account, Farlogyn, in 2016.

Babinatlou made numerous other payments to Moraka's company in 2017.
