Lynne Brown is a liar - Sikonathi Mantshantsha

Deputy Editor at the Financial Mail Sikonathi Mantshantsha says former public enterprises minister Lynne Brown did the right thing by resigning.

Brown tendered her resignation as a member of Parliament on Thursday.

Lying Brown finally does the right thing which is get off the public face of South Africa ...there's one one word for all of that, which is hogwash.

Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor at Financial Mail

Under Lynne Brown's watch, Eskom has gone from worse to completely broken. the four years she spent in Public Enterprise served one purpose and that was the Gupta family.

Now that she has been denied an opportunity to continue serving the Guptas, off she goes so that she can inherit a higher pension. She is getting out of there because she has become completely useless to the Gupta family.

Mantshantsha says Brown is responsible for Eksom's eight credit downgrades over the last five years.

He says Brown should explain to South Africa, during the commission of inquiry, why is she not guilty of treason and corruption.

It is Lynne Brown who made sure that Matshela Koko does not get suspended but now all the Guptas stooges are gone....
