Cape Town - It is imperative that allegations of corruption regarding some state-owned enterprises (SOEs) be investigated by appropriate legal processes, if required, Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown said on Wednesday.

She told the National Council of Provinces that SOEs are a critical tool in the hands of the developmental state.

"We must confront and overcome the allegations and counter-allegations of corruption in SOEs and set about our transformative journey in a climate of the highest ethics and responsibility, thus contributing to the rating agencies reversing their recent decisions in the shortest possible time," said Brown.
