We were sold a dummy - Former Eskom CEO

Former Eskom CEO Matshela Koko admitted yesterday that during his tenure at the power utility, Eskom exposed internal data to third parties.

Koko was speaking during the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, where he responded to questions about his alleged correspondence with Salim Essa through the "infoportal1@zoho.com" email address to a contact known as "Businessman".

When asked by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo whether he still believed that Dr Ben Ngubane was the “Businessman” behind the email address, Koko said he no longer believed that.

“Knowing what I know, I don’t think so,” he said.

“I think we were sold a dummy. I think we were sold down the Mississippi.”

“It has become more and more obvious that it was an external party, and that’s what makes me flabbergasted – that we have exposed Eskom information to third parties,” he said.

:ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

Someone should ask him why he hadn't been checking if Ngubane was receiving the messages or info. Surely if you didn't realise it was a third party on the other end you'd still be stuck with a problem that your intended recipient never got the info. The commission questioners are also dummies for being dummied by Koko.

After this, Daniels said Essa stopped her at a petrol station and offered her R800 million to change her mind and follow their orders.

Whodafuq refuses a bribe like this? I sure wouldn't :ROFL:

A contact known as "Businessman"...dude, if this wasn't a red flag something legitimate wasn't on the go, then you're not CEO material. Can't claim ignorance and want to run a company at an overinflated salary!

"I didn't know"

If you are not even smart enough to appreciate the risks of anonymous emails....
