The utility is understood to be in the process of charging at least three senior managers and two senior executives with misconduct for their alleged involvement in the scandal.

They include chief financial officer Anoj Singh‚ former head of procurement Edwin Mabelane‚ acting head of group capital Prish Govender‚ senior procurement manager Charles Kalima and former CEO Matshela Koko.

The officials referred all requests for comment to Eskom.

Some new role players have also emerged in the scandal‚ incriminating virtually the whole top management layer.
