Parliament: Lynne Brown ranges between attack and denial in bruising six-hour State Capture interrogation

Parliament’s public enterprises committee as part of its oversight had encouraged the executives and board chairpersons of State-owned Entities (SoEs) to share information to improve performance. But a meeting in early 2015 called by then SAA board chairperson Dudu Myeni with her Eskom counterpart Zola Tsotsi at the presidential residence in Durban wasn’t quite what had been contemplated. It was that meeting, at which President Jacob Zuma also made an appearance, according to testimony at the parliamentary State Sapture inquiry on Wednesday, which set in motion a series of suspensions and resignations at Eskom that link to further State Capture deals.
