Cape Town - Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said he didn’t know why it took Eskom a while to respond to National Treasury’s request for a report relating to contracts with Tegeta for coal.

He and other ministers of the economic cluster were responding to oral questions on their departments in parliament on Wednesday when IFP member Narend Singh asked Gordhan about Eskom and its defence of the contract with Tegeta coal – a company that is owned by the Guptas.

“I don’t know,” Gordhan said. “Mr (Brian) Molefe (CEO of Eskom) is defending his position as far as this family (the Guptas) is concerned. The best person to answer your question is Mr Molefe himself,” Gordhan said.

He confirmed that National Treasury did indeed receive Eskom’s report on Tegeta coal on and is currently studying the report.
