The Special Investigating Unit is probing claims made by global engineering giant ABB in a written submission that former Eskom boss Matshela Koko instructed it to subcontract work at Kusile power station to a company called Leago, which was, according to the submission, "a conduit for his benefit".

Following this, ABB agreed to a R90m contract with Leago.

Koko went to university with Leago owner Thabo Mokwena, and was also a groomsman at his wedding. Both Koko and Mokwena this week denied there was anything untoward about the deal.
