WATCH: Anoj Singh gives Eskom testimony at Zondo commission

Singh will continue with Eskom evidence on Thursday after appearing at the commission last week on Transnet-related evidence.

Former Eskom chief financial officer (CF) Anoj Singh returned to the witness stand at the the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture to give his evidence related to the power utility.

This is after Singh failed to appear at the commission in January for his Eskom testimony, which was postponed by Zondo.

Singh submitted an affidavit outlining the reasons why he was not ready to give evidence and why he had not complied with two directives from the commission instructing him to file affidavits dealing with Eskom-related evidence.

His counsel, Anneline van den Heever, had requested more time to submit Singh’s comprehensive affidavit. However, Zondo took issue with the summons the commission’s legal team issued against Singh on 17 December 2020.

Zondo asked the evidence leader, Pule Seleka, which affidavit the commission’s legal team was referring to in the summons, when Singh had not submitted one.
