Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has asked her personal assistant Kim Davids to resign.
Minister Brown has asked Davids to resign following allegations related to email leaks this week.
This past week I have been confronted by allegations against Ms Davids. In the interest of fairness I asked Ms Davids to respond to these allegations. I was satisfied with her responses but I felt that the continuous allegations against Ms Davids could compromise the legitimacy of my office, said Minister Brown on Wednesday.
Minister Brown further added that her decision is not an expression of guilt on Davids’s part.
However, it is important that my office is above reproach. I want to thank Ms Davids for her service and wish her well, said Minister Brown.
