According to this report, there is evidence that indicates state capture. The committee now wants action to be taken against the people implicated by the report.

Former Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, and former Public Enterprises Minister, Lynne Brown, are both implicated.

It is also reported that Atul Gupta, Duduzane Zuma, and Ashu Chawla had influence on Eskom decisions.

Briefly.co.za gathered that the Parliament committee found compelling and strong evidence that many corporate entities gained illegally from Eskom.

Private accounts and shell companies seem to have been the means by which money was stolen from the utility.

The committee's report will appear before the National Assembly in order to be officially adopted.
