FULL THREAD: The Government Awarded Gwanda Solar Energy Deal To An SA Businessman Alleged To Have Looted From Eskom

Award-winning journalist Hopewell Chin’ono writing on Twitter has said the Government has given the Gwanda Solar Energy to a company owned by a controversial businessman. Chin’ono said:

1. Minister Fortune Chasi Zimbabwe has awarded the Gwanda solar project to Matshela Energy owned by Koko Matshela who was implicated in the looting of Eskom & linked to the Guptas! Are you as a minister aware of his background & links to corruption in SA?

2. I just thought I should put it out there for the record if things go wrong the Wicknell way! The citizens need to know the type of people that are being engaged & their history! Are we not able to partner with companies that have clean records Fortune Chasi? We have failed?

Chin’ono produced an article from the Times live which alleges that alleges Matshela was fingered in Eskom looting.

Explosive details of how former Eskom boss Matshela Koko allegedly facilitated the looting of millions of rand from the Kusile power plant construction project have been exposed in reports presented to the SIU by a multi-national engineering company that scored a R2.2bn contract with the utility.

The documents claim that Koko guaranteed Swiss engineering giant ABB future contracts worth R6.5bn if it subcontracted work on Kusile to Impulse International, a company part-owned by his stepdaughter.

The company is one of 11 international engineering giants being investigated by the SIU for their role in looting about R139bn to build power stations.

The documents detail how ABB colluded with Koko and senior executives at Eskom to win billions of rands in Eskom contracts

  1. How can u award a South African citizen such a deal yet here in SA Solar Energy is not popular whilst in The Banana Republic we used to have the similar projects controlled by the UN Dept Of Energy and a lot of local companies took part in the project which was a success? Chasi ! Chisi hachiere musi wacharimwa

  2. Now the corrupt siuth afticans who brought down escom and left it in ita knees are spilling over into zim and we seriously hild our breath that the saviours are here. These guys are masters at open corruption and capturing the state which is already not ao much in people’s hands anymore

  3. There is load shedding in douth africs why hasnt this fella offered his services to escom if (and its a big IF) he has the resources. He took over guptas New Age’s ANN7 with zero monry to buy it. Where will he get resources to finance this build? Except from our govt, the Chivayo way
