"ANC Did Not Employ Me At Eskom" Koko Matshela

Deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo will soon release the second part of the State Capture Commission report which is greatly anticipated by those who want to see if other top ANC names will be in the second part of the report since they were implicated for corruption.

Former Eskom executive, Koko Matshela who is one of the individuals who have their names included in the State Capture Commission said he cannot wait to see what Raymond Zondo wrote about him in the report.

Koko Matshela was fired from Eskom by the then deputy president, Cyril Ramaphosa on allegations of corruption. Matshela however maintains that he has never been corrupt nor did he involve himself in any corrupt activities.

"Whatever the content of the State Capture Commission Report part two says about me and others it is going to be very fascinating to read," he said.

The former Eskom executive further argued that president Cyril Ramaphosa lied at the State Capture Commission and he would like to see how deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo will cleanse him. Matshela says Ramaphosa must be charged for perjury.

"President lied to the Commission. Let's see how you cleanse that. For once I agree with Democratic Alliance. He must be held to account for perjury.

Why did the President lie? That's the issue. We all know what is the purpose of the Deployment Committee. Why did he lie about it under oath" he said.


After he was fired from his position at Eskom, many feel that the criticism of Cyril Ramaphosa by Koko Matshela is driven by hate and bitterness at a time he is also an ANC deployed cadre who allegedly abused his deployment at Eskom.

He however refuted those claims that he was deployed at Eskom by ANC. Matshela maintains that the ruling party did not employ him there.

"The ANC did not deploy me at Eskom," he said.
