Energy expert Chris Yelland has been investigating staggeringly high pollution levels at power stations in SA, with his work leading to a criminal court case in connection with shenanigans at Mpumalanga’s Kendal plant. He shares the details of why Eskom employees must be held accountable for poisonous emissions linked to anywhere from 100 to 2,000 premature deaths, each year near one power station alone. Yelland has been in touch with Eskom’s management. In this discussion, BizNews explores whether Eskom employees will go to jail, how much this legal action will cost the taxpayer and the extent of Eskom’s pollution.
