ABB South Africa will pay Eskom R1.56 billion in full settlement of an overpayment dispute relating to a contract unlawfully awarded through corrupt means for work done at Kusile power station.
“We appreciate this development and encourage the work done by the SIU and other law enforcement agencies to recovery these monies, including exposing and dealing with individuals behind corruption-related activities.” Explained Magaxa
