Judgment is anticipated in R2.2-billion Kusile strike-out matter

# The Middelburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court in Mpumalanga is set to decide today whether there was an unreasonable delay in the 2.2-billion-rand Kusile power station matter. The case stems from corruption allegations surrounding a tender. The accused include former Eskom interim CEO Matshela Koko, his wife and two stepdaughters, and lawyer Johannes Coetzee. Magistrate Stanley Jacobs determined in March the Investigating Directorate should be ready to proceed with the trial in September, but they asked for another postponement. Lawyers then asked for charges to be dropped.
