The report states that the conversations happened a day after the suspension of four Eskom executives.
“The evidence of Brown before the commission was unequivocal: she said that she did not know Salim Essa and had never spoken to him. However, the records show that she had a total of eight telephone conversations with the user of Essa's cellphone, and therefore Essa, at a total duration of 1,398 seconds, that is more than 23 minutes. Each of these calls was probably initiated by Essa,” the report states.
“ Essa probably tried to initiate 12 additional calls with Brown but was unsuccessful and the call is recorded as lasting zero seconds,” reads the report.
The report further emphatically states that Brown participated in state capture at Denel by using her powers to install on boards individuals who she believed, and probably because she was told so, would facilitate or at least not oppose the capture of the state by the Guptas.
