Parliament's inquiry into allegations of state capture at Eskom resumed on Tuesday.
Democratic Alliance (DA) Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Mazzone says everyone mentioned in the testimonies given to the committee will be given right of reply.
On Tuesday, Eskom's board spokesperson Khulani Qoma told parliamentarians on the Public Enterprises Committee that Brown is an “atrocious” minister who appointed “compromised executives”.
The minister hit back in a statement accusing the probe of taking the form of a kangaroo court, saying it should allow those who have been accused of wrongdoing to explain their actions.
Mazzone says this is not a witch hunt.
I think the problem is that this is the first time Parliament has ever executed its muscle and shown exactly what the Constitution mandates us to do, and the executives just don't like that for the first time they are being held to account.— Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises
They have been accused of some very serious things. We will be putting it to them whether or not this is in fact true.— Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises
I think it is important to note that everyone that we have interviewed so far has done so under oath and they understand the massive penalties and the criminal offense it is to give false testimony to Parliament.— Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises
