daBusiness Report writes that the Democratic Alliance (DA) will be laying criminal charges against Eskom’s Chief Financial Officer, Anoj Singh.  

In a statement released by the party on Thursday it said that it had reason to believe that Singh allegedly might have played a pivotal role in the Guptas’ capture of Eskom.  The official opposition said that Singh has been linked to a range of corruption scandals and dodgy deals at Eskom which must be fully investigated.  These include: the Trillian contracts of R495 million, as a subcontractor of McKinsey; the arbitration settlement of R577 million, reduced from R2.1 billion, for Tegeta; giving Tegeta a R1.6 billion guarantee to purchase Optimum even if it wasn’t used; and the upfront coal contract payment to Tegeta.
