Eskom board chairperson Jabu Mabuza is expected to continue testifying at the judicial commission of inquiry into state capture led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Monday.

Mabuza told the commission on Friday, that when he took office at the state-owned entity in January 2018, he found that it was the "main theatre where corruption and state capture was taking place". Mabuza testified about a Treasury report, which recommended remedial action to rid the power utility of impropriety, and said the current board had not yet seen it.
