Another Eskom exec facing suspension
Eskom’s head of legal Suzanne Daniels' report shows damning evidence against several people involved in ensuring Trillian was paid millions.
JOHANNESBURG – An Eskom executive, who compiled a report in which illegal payments of more than R500 million to Gupta-linked Trillian were detailed, is now facing suspension.
The utility’s legal head Suzanne Daniels has confirmed to Eyewitness News that she received a notice of suspension for billing Eskom for a R50,000 team building exercise.
Her report into payments to Trillian and McKinsey, which was handed to Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown, exposed several executives.
Daniels was handed a notice of suspension this week.
EWN understands that Daniels has been accused of spending money irregularly after taking her staff on a team building exercise in April which cost around R50,000, an amount which apparently hasn't yet been paid.
She's also been accused of not adhering to instructions to answer a parliamentary question, and for destroying crucial documents.
A forensic report has apparently found no evidence of this.
Meanwhile, Eskom’s CFO Anoj Singh and three others involved in the Trillian scandal have been suspended and face disciplinary action.
