DPE head Lynne Brown challenges Leader of the Opposition on secrecy claim

Lynne Brown
Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown

We received the letter below from Colin Cruywagen, Head of Communications at the Department of Public Enterprises. On behalf of his boss Lynne Brown, Cruywagen raises a protest at a line which appeared in DA Leader Mmusi Maimane’s blockbuster opinion piece promising to do everything possible to stop the proposed nuclear deal. Cruywagen refutes this line “and Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown confirmed that information on the process will not be made public.” Have another read of the article. What is not being refused speaks volumes…Alec Hogg

From the DPE:

Your article “Maimane: DA ‘will do everything to everything’ to stop Zupta’s bribe-soaked nuclear deal” refers to a statement attributed to the Minister of Public Enterprises, Lynne Brown.

This is incorrect and it is mischievous of Mr Maimane to attribute statements to Minister Brown.

I urge you to challenge him to provide evidence of where and when Minister Brown allegedly made these comments.

As an Honourable Leader, Mr Maimane should check his facts and not spread untruths.

I also request BizNews to publish this request prominently on their site.
