CAPE TOWN- Former public enterprises minister Lynne Brown has resigned as a member of Parliament.

Brown was one of the causalities of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet reshuffle announced earlier this week.

Her time at her office was overshadowed by state capture allegations under her administration of state owned enterprises. She has been replaced by former finance minister Pravin Gordhan.

ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu said of Brown’s resignation, “She (Brown) has expressed her gratitude in having served the people of South Africa and thanked the ANC for having given her the opportunity to do so,” said Mthembu.

“We are confident that she will continue serving the country and our movement in other capacities in future. We wish her well.”
