Theft and Fraud Uncovered at Eskom’s Tutuka Power Station


Two Eskom employees and a supplier have been arrested on charges of theft, fraud, and corruption in Mpumalanga.

Their dubious dealings relate to the disappearance of spare parts at the Tutuka power station.

They were each released on R 5 000 bail and are due back in court in February.

Their arrest relates to hundreds of millions rands of goods and services that Eskom had paid for, but which were never delivered.

Eskom spokesperson, Sikonathi Mantshantsha says that four other suspects are expected to be arrested next week in relation to the same case.

And more warrants are being prepared in the fuel / oil syndicate.

This revelation comes as the country has been plunged into another bout of loadshedding after several generation units at the country’s power stations had tripped.

Those receiving their electricity from the City of Cape Town will follow the Stage 4 load shedding schedule as of 10 o’clock until 5am tomorrow.
