Eskom board chairman Dr Ben Ngubane has dared MPs‚ telling them he "loved" their idea of criminal investigations at the power utility because he and his team have nothing to hide. Ngubane was speaking during a tense meeting of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public accounts (SCOPA) which was called to discuss Eskom's questionable coal supply deal with Gupta-linked firm Tegeta. Eskom faced a grilling from MPs on the basis of a PricewaterhouseCoopers review of its coal supply contracts. But a clearly incensed Ngubane told lawmakers "bring it on‚" saying he was not afraid of any probe into the affairs of Eskom.
