CAPE TOWN - Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown says she'll hear from Eskom’s board this week about the investigation into its acting CEO Matshela Koko.

It's been alleged that Koko's stepdaughter Koketso Choma benefited from contracts worth around R1 billion from Eskom.

Brown is among economics cluster ministers answering Members of Parliament’s questions in the National Assembly.

She was asked by Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzone whether she agreed that Koko should be suspended until the investigation was concluded.

“At the moment, the board has approved the Cliff & Dekker Attorneys to investigate the allegations that have been in the public space around Mr Koko and I await the board’s presentation to me, which should be by the end of this week.”
