This comes after Eskom CEO, Brian Molefe and chair, Ben Ngubane answered questions regarding several matters at the power utility in Parliament yesterday.

Committee member Narend Singh indicated that he wants more information about the practice of paying suppliers in advance.   

Singh says at the next briefing, input from the National Treasury and other relevant role players would be included.  

Eskom was grilled yesterday with Molefe saying there was nothing wrong in doing business with the Gupta family.

"The South African Bureau of Standards said there is nothing wrong with this coal and those employees were suspended. We do not understand why they had said the coal was substandard. So, to me, it sounds like the objection is about doing business with Tegeta or with the Guptas. I don't know what the reasons are other than gossip and innuendo," Molefe said.
