Lynne Brown sees no evil, hears no evil, speaks no evil - Mazzone

Stephen Grootes speaks to Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone about the state capture and Lynne Brown's involvement in the #EskomEnquiry.

What’s happening in this inquiry has been riveting.

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has denied consulting or meeting with the Gupta family before making government decisions. Brown appeared before Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises, which is investigating alleged capture at Eskom.

Earlier on, former Eskom Board Chairperson Zola Tsotsi told the committee that Tony Gupta threatened his job because he was not helping the Gupta family at Eskom.

Zola Tsotsi’s statements at the State Capture Enquiry were incredibly brave says Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone. Tsotsi claims that former chair for SAA Dudu Myeni, arranged a meeting with Tony Gupta and was told who to suspend and what reasons to give.

I have no reason to believe why Zola Tsotsi would A, remember these things in the detail that he does and B, why he would lie about it?

Mazzone says that Tsotsi begged for an apology to the members of the board that were suspended and lost their jobs.

I didn’t mean to embarrass him in anyway, but it proves that he had done something wrong and he was admitting to us that he done something wrong.

Lynne Brown’s role was to see nothing, hear nothing and say nothing, says Mazzone. Mazzone adds that Brown was a convenient placement because she could be easily manipulated.

Brown entered her testimony highlighting her faith in Eskom but claims that the board lied to her. She questioned Brown's statement by arguing that if the minister doesn't trust Eskom, then how can the public?
