Gert Opperman, a coal supply unit manager at Eskom, will finish his testimony at the state capture inquiry on Monday.

Opperman was in charge of managing Optimum's contract to supply coal to the Hendrina power station from 2012, when international mining giant Glencore bought a controlling stake in the mine.

But despite his position, he told the inquiry on Friday that he was not consulted on critical decisions taken by Eskom's board and senior executives - a number of whom have been implicated in state capture - on matters pertaining to a lucrative coal supply agreement with Optimum and a massive fine imposed on the mine for delivering substandard coal.
