The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on State Own Entities says it will soon summon the Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan and the Eskom board to appear before it.
The committee’s chairperson Khaya Magaxa says the aim is to get clarity on the sale of Eskom assets.
Magaxa says he does not agree with privatisation of state assets, but they will seek to understand the reasoning behind it.
He says, “We have not yet been briefed about the process. We just get it from the media and I might have the same interpretation as you do. But up until the minister comes, explains, and accounts on the portfolio committee, I won’t accept that as a person.”
