Former Eskom CEO in the hot seat over a potentially illegal investigation into corruption at Eskom.

Former Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter is under severe scrutiny due to a potentially illegal, privately funded covert surveillance operation into the embattled power utility.government institutions, including parliament, the State Security Agency and the Public Enterprise’s department, want to know how Eskom secured the services of unvetted operatives who had unrestricted access to sensitive information – all while they were kept in the dark.

Standing Committee on Public Accounts member Sakhumzi Moyo previously said that the investigation was a risk to Eskom as the former CEO was also not properly vetted by the SSA. Although parliament wants to question the SSA regarding the potentially illegal operation, Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, the minister in the presidency responsible for state security, said that SSA did not know about the investigation.

“The SSA is equally not in a position to comment on any reports or findings by private individuals about the state of affairs at Eskom, as we have not been party to these in the first place.”, de Ruyter was repeatedly questioned about the identities of a senior minister and another high-ranking politician who he previously alleged were aware of entrenched corruption at the power utility.
