CAPE TOWN - Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has again denied that the Guptas have ever influenced her.

MPs at Parliament's inquiry into the capture of state-owned enterprises grilled Brown on Wednesday.

She’s accused of being captured, paving the way for the Gupta family to fleece parastatals, especially Eskom.

Brown is now calling for a comprehensive probe into corruption allegations at the power utility.

Former Eskom board chair Zola Tsotsi said he met Tony Gupta and his business associate, Salim Essa, at Brown's home.

Brown denies this.

She's also denied ever speaking to the Guptas on the phone about the suspension of acting Eskom CEO, Matshela Koko.
