The DA's Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone, says the party has persisted for this Inquiry to be convened in Parliament.

"Now that it has begun, we will work to uncover the full extent of the rot at Eskom and it's capture for narrow political interests," says Mazzone.

Mazzone says the party is pleased that the inquiry will include summoning prominent individuals like the Guptas, Duduzane Zuma, Brian Molefe, Ben Ngubane and other executives and board members. It will also scrutinise several damning investigative reports into Eskom. 

"These include the Denton report, the report into Matshela Koko's alleged nepotism scandal and the Eskom-Tegeta-Optimum Coal deal - which implicates the Guptas," says Mazzone.

The committee will meet in late July to finalise all the documents.
