Eskom bosses in hot water over poor recordkeeping
Cape Town – Eskom’s leaders found themselves in hot water yesterday when it emerged that they had failed to provide adequate documents in the auditing of their finances for the 2020-21 financial year. This comes as Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts was intent on holding those responsible accountable.
ANC MP Bheki Hadebe noted that up to R11 billion in irregular expenditure was incurred and there was no sufficient record of the expenditure.
On Tuesday Cassim said they acknowledged the shortcoming and would ensure that the necessary record-keeping was in place. But, Scopa chairperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa said they wanted to know why there were no documents.
