Eskom has defended payments that were issued to executives after the power utility’s annual report showed a 109-percent increase compared to last year.
Eskom spokesperson Hilary Joffe says the figure may be credited to the filling of executive positions which had been vacant.
A report revealed that 18-point-five-million-Rands were paid to executives this financial year.
Human resources head Bhabhalazi Bulunga who took home a 507-percent increase to just over three-million-Rands.
