Eskom supervisor and truck driver arrested for stealing fuel

An Eskom senior shift supervisor at the Matla Power Station and a heavy fuel oil tanker driver were arrested for fraud and theft this past week.

Eskom said an investigation by the Bidvest Protea Coin Investigation Team, which is contracted by the utility, found that tanker drivers would offload the fuel oil at unknown locations before arriving at the power station. Eskom said that the theft of fuel oil was a highly organised criminal activity and that the syndicates involved were being enriched through the proceeds derived from the illicit trade of the stolen products.
