Gordhan asked questions as a part of a Parliamentary oversight committee wanting answers from minister Brown and the Eskom board.

Gordhan says minister Brown was instructed to rehire Molefe and asked for the audio recording of the board meeting when it was decide to reinstate him.

He's called for a full forensic investigation and a full parliamentary inquiry. Effectively throwing down the gauntlet and saying that both Ben Ngubane and Lynne Brown need to come clean.

Karima argues that the inconsistencies in the affidavits and answers given in Parliament could potentially lead to minister Brown facing perjury charges.

The former finance minister asked a set of questions that will expose the inconsistencies and the lies at the base of the mess that we see with Brian Molefe's return to Eskom.

The documents and audio could expose people who may have lied and, further more, committed a crime, Karima explains.

It's very clear here that a crime has been committed.
