An Eskom senior shift supervisor at Matla power station and an oil tanker driver were arrested earlier this week for the theft of heavy fuel oil and fraud, the company announced on Saturday.

Drivers would offload the fuel oil at unknown locations before arriving at the power station. The tankers would then enter the power station empty. Weighbridge slips would be fraudulently registered and printed as if the ordered oil/fuel product was offloaded. Delivery notes were then signed off. In a separate statement, Transnet reported on Friday that two people had been sentenced to hefty periods of 15 years in prison for fuel theft from Durban to Johannesburg pipeline.
