CAPE TOWN - Members of Parliament (MPs) probing state capture are expected to hear from Eskom’s board and it's suspended CFO Anoj Singh when their inquiry resumes on Tuesday.

Singh is reportedly accused of financial misconduct and is facing internal disciplinary charges.

The inquiry is investigating widespread corruption involving Gupta-aligned companies and executives at the state-owned power utility.

Singh’s name has come up numerous times during the parliamentary inquiry.

Mosilo Mothepu, the former CEO of Trillian Financial Advisory, claimed Singh helped the company score deals by sharing inside information on a memory stick.

Eskom paid Trillian nearly R600 million for advisory services without any signed contracts in place.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse has opened charges of corruption against him for his role in the Trillian fiasco.

Singh was seconded from Transnet to take up an executive position at Eskom in 2015.
