A forensic investigation is under way at Kusile and Medupi power stations. The planned 780MW power output that was supposed to occur at the two stations are not happening while loadshedding is implemented throughout South-Africa.
If truth to be told, it was recently discovered that contractors’ sub-standard work has submerged at these two stations.
The cost at Medupi has escalated from R69 billion since 2007 to a huge amount of R145 billion on completion, which is almost 100% higher in the construction of the one station.
The ANC government can not simply assign these occurrences of fraud to corruption and theft. It appears that the ruling government takes too little responsibility or non at all for their incompetence.
Observers say Pravin Gordhan can now state that “someone is definitely making money from Eskom”.
