South Africa’s Eskom has asked consultancy firms McKinsey and Trillian to pay it back 1.6 billion rand ($117 million), saying that an internal inquiry had found that the state power utility’s decisions to make the payments were unlawful, Reuters has reported.

“The interim findings from Eskom investigations into the circumstances surrounding payments made to both the companies point to certain decisions by Eskom, and resultant payments, as being unlawful,” Eskom said on Thursday.

The utility said in a statement it has written to both companies requesting their cooperation in returning the money.
