Former Eskom board chairperson Zola Tsotsi says the controversial Gupta family used former President Jacob Zuma’s name as leverage to get what they wanted.

He says they also threatened him using Zuma’s name. It was common knowledge amongst the government officials and people who had reason to interact with them. They certainly had the attention of the president to threaten people. They did the same to me,” he said.

He says Tony Gupta wanted him to facilitate the appointment of said person.

Tsotsi was testifying at the Zondo Commission.
