Johannesburg - Eskom board chairperson Jabu Mabuza will be the first witness to take the stand at the inquiry as it starts its investigation into state capture allegations at the power utility.
The commission's legal team led by Advocate Vincent Maleka said Eskom would be the first state-owned enterprise to be investigated because of its important role and its complexity as well as its large revenue.
Maleka set out the timetable that will be followed regarding the Eskom phase of the investigation which is expected to take several weeks.
Mabuza is expected to wrap-up his testimony on Monday, February 25. Maleka says from Mabuza, the commission expects to get a sense of what the new board which was appointed last year is doing to clean up Eskom. Maleka said of interest was what the new leadership found when it first started.
On February 27 the commission will hear the testimony of Eskom employee Dan Mashigo.
