Eskom inquiry: "It's embarrassing to see a Minister in a compromising position"

Damning new evidence coming out of Eskom inquiry seems to implicate Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown of being captured, linking her to the controversial Gupta family.

DA shadow minister for Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone says the evidence coming out now connects the dots in a big way.

It is absolutely undeniable and it is actually embarrassing when you see a Minister in such a compromising position, just refusing to admit any wrong doing and just putting her head in the sand like an ostrich quite frankly.

Brown denied being in a relationship with Ingrid Tufvesson‚ who is said to be in business with Kim Davids family. Davids was Browns PA who got fired after Gupta leaked emails linked her to the controversial family.

Mazzone says it is well known that Brown has a life partner even though she is denying it.

These are the ostrich head in the sand kind of thing. It's a well known fact that the minister has a life partner and has been for many years.

South African are not stupid and we not buying these ridiculous excuses anymore.

Mazzone says all those who are implicated in the state capture, they will ensure that the law take its course and they are jailed.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck and we will make sure that these ducks march straight to jail.
