Recently there have been multiple statements towards the need for recall of Public Enterprises Minister Lynn Brown. Cope says President Cyril Ramaphosa should act decisively and dismiss her with immediate effect.

South Africa can no longer afford to have a minister who is of a deceitful nature. She has violated the executive ethics code and needs to face the consequences.

“Minister Brown inadvertently misled Parliament in her assertion that there were no other contracts of engagement concluded between Eskom and Trillian,”

Cope’s Deidre Carter says Ramaphosa should act in the best interest of the country and show fair and honest governance by dismissing Brown.

“She was supposed to hold oversight over Eskom but she did not, why did she not scrutinize what Eskom provided to her considering what has been circulating the media and the Gupta leaked emails?”
