Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown has acknowledged serious allegations of maladministration and corruption lodged against Eskom.

Speaking to power producers at the Power-Gen Africa Conference in Johannesburg on Tuesday, Brown said she's had to question the veracity of the answers given to her by Eskom's board and management in recent months.

Several investigations into the the parastatal, as well as some of it's executives are still underway.
