Suspended Eskom procurement chief Solly Tshitangano faced a disciplinary hearing for 11 charges of misconduct in 2005, when he worked as a chief director at the Mpumalanga provincial treasury.

The outcome of the disciplinary is unknown, but the charges bear a similarity with charges Tshitangano is now facing at Eskom – failure to submit key strategic and regulatory documents on time, abusive or insolent behaviour to his boss, and failing to report irregularities as soon as he became aware of them, according to documents seen by News24.
