Lynne Brown says she will not resign

Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown on Thursday dismissed calls for her resignation, saying that South African State-owned companies were in a better position since she took over in 2014. Brown, who twice missed a session to answer questions in the National Assembly – once because she was testifying in a parliament inquiry on State capture and again when she called in sick – responded in writing to opposition Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzone.
