  • Former Eskom board chairperson Zola Tsotsi will appear before Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Tuesday.
  • The commission is hearing Eskom-related testimony for the second day in a row.
  • On Monday, the power utility's former CEO Tshediso Matona, who was abruptly suspended after just five months on the job in 2015, took to the stand. 


The hearings of the commission of inquiry into state capture will continue on Tuesday with Eskom-related evidence from the former board chairperson, Zola Tsotsi. 

On Monday, former CEO Tshediso Matona, appeared before Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo. Matona and the power utility parted ways in May 2015, after Matona was suspended two months earlier for allegedly providing unreliable and inconsistent information to the Eskom war room.

Matona previously gave evidence before a parliamentary inquiry into governance at Eskom, where he said that when he arrived at the utility, he found it filled with "significant tension" and "serious infighting" within the board.
