A former Eskom board spokesman had harsh words for Public Enterprises Minister, Lynne Brown.
The inquiry into the power giant’s affairs is underway in Parliament.
According to Khulani Qoma, “Her (Brown’s) DG is captured, her PA is captured, obviously her lovers interest at Eskom, and then you have Transnet, Eskom and Denel people who are captured, that is water to her, so she’s in the mist of water yet she say’s I’m not wet, and we supposed to believe that?
“The problem here is the minister. This Minister needs to sit here and account because this mess would not have been possible if she was a capable Minister. She’s totally incapable. There’s no doubt about that.”
Qoma says the power utility’s current board has also been captured.
“The current acting chairperson said this new board, including the minister, as I stated, they are captured…this board marries an individual, not an institution, and this individual happens to be totally captured. It lends to reason that the board is without capacity.
