The FF Plus has asked the Public Protector (PP) to investigate allegations in recent media reports suggesting that the acting head of Eskom, Matshela Koko's step-daughter Koketso Choma directly benefitted from huge tenders that Eskom has granted to a company of which she is shareholder and co-director.
Adv. Anton Alberts, the FF Plus' parliamentary spokesperson on energy, writes in his request to the PP that the tenders awarded to the company Impulses International are “irregular and suspicious".
The Sunday Times recently reported that tenders worth R1,8 billion were awarded to Impulse International. R16 million of this money was allegedly channelled to the company Ukwakhiwa Investments of which Choma is the sole director.
Impulse International also allegedly donated an amount of R1,7 million to the ANC shortly after the company was awarded a tender of R14,2 million by Eskom.
“Over and above any possible criminal liability, special attention must be given to the possibility that the guilty parties and employees be held personally liable for any losses identified herein,” says adv. Alberts.
