CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) called for Eskom to hand over the Oliver Wyman report to Parliament following Eskom's confession on 28 August 2017 that they lied about payments to financial services provider, Trillian. 

This follows Eskom's modified claim after initially stating that the R1.6 billion, paid in June this year to Trillian was legitimate.

Eskom defended the payments and declared it as lawful, following an investigation by Global consultancy, Oliver Wyman, in June.

However, according to recent reports, Oliver Wyman warned Eskom against approval of the fore-mentioned payments, having red flagged them and stipulated that Eskom must conduct a legal review of all it's contracts. 

The DA has taken action against this felony and stated that they will write to the Acting Public Enterprises Committee Chairperson, Ms Zukiswa Ranthoto to request that she hands over the Oliver Wyman report to Parliament for perusal. 

The DA condemns Eskom's actions and will ensure that all responsible parties be held accountable at Parliament’s upcoming Eskom Inquiry.

In addition, the DA made mention of the a number of corruption scandals following Eskom's close ties with the Guptas.
