/ 31 July 2020


On 31 July 2020, the Mail & Guardian published an article with the headline “Eskom cancels dodgy R100m tender”. The headline was false and no contract was ever cancelled between Eskom and IDS Africa as no tender was awarded for the maintenance of boiler tubes at Medupi Power Station. IDS Africa was not found guilty of any wrong-doing by any investigation and passed all phases of the bid process that eventually proved unsuccessful.

IDS Africa’s right-of-reply can be read here.
