CAPE TOWN – The chairman of the Parliament's study on Eskom, Zukiswa Rantho, said that Parliament's Public Sector Committee is uncomfortable and disappointed that an interim report on the results and recommendations of the investigation has been concluded.
She argues that this leak could jeopardize the recommendations that would be encountered by those involved in the capture of the state in a criminal investigation.
In accordance with Business Day, the interim report recommends that 44 persons, including Interior Minister Malusi Gigaba and former Minister of Public Affairs Lynne Brown, should monitor the criminal investigation.
Rantho says she will report to Parliament about the leak.
The committee spent five months investigating officials, rapporteurs and politicians, but has not yet completed the investigation report.
Ranto says the report contains confidential information and she does not want the content to be used.
In accordance with Business Day, 25 reporting companies involved 25 projects.
But Rantho says that the State Enterprise Committee has not yet offered stakeholders the opportunity to respond to their findings against them.
"We have suggestions for people who need to continue to investigate in a criminal offense, but now I do not know how they will be affected if it does."
Ranto says she hopes that the committee can adopt a draft report this week.
