Enterprises Minister sticks to her guns, again calls for state capture inquiry

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has reaffirmed her support for a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture.

Brown was the first cabinet minister to endorse the idea of an investigation into alleged deals between the Gupta family and Eskom.

She was briefing Parliament's public enterprise committee on the state-owned enterprises that fall under her auspices.

Eyewitness News parliamentary correspondent Gaye Davis was there.

She reiterated her view that she very strongly believes that there should be a commission of inquiry or some investigation into the allegations contained in former public protector Thuli Madonsela’s state of capture report.

She indicated to the MPs that she and Treasury had gone through the state of capture report… they could not find violations of the PSMA (Project Management South Africa).
