eskomFin24 reports that state-owned power utility Eskom has suspended a senior general manager pending an investigation into irregular conduct in the supply of coal by a Gupta-owned mine.  

Ayanda Nteta was suspended after she was accused of granting Optimum Col a three-month extension of temporary relief in coal quality without approval from the board.  The company supplies the Hendrina power station in Mpumalanga with coal.  Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe declined to give further details on the matter, saying an investigation against Nteta was still ongoing.  The Sunday Times reported on Sunday that Nteta had been accused of granting the extension between August and October last year.  The reprieve followed a previous extension apparently given to Optimum between June 2016 and March last year.
