Mkhwebane: State capture inquiry must 'ensure no stone is left unturned'

Article Image

Mkhwebane welcomed President Jacob Zuma's announcement of a commission of inquiry into state capture.

In his statement Zuma has relinquished the power to Mogoeng who he says has selected Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who was appointed in June a year ago following the retirement of Dikgang Moseneke.

The High Court in December rejected Zuma's arguments that he alone can set up the commission and ordered him to pay the cost of the case.

The announcement has sparked comments and conversation on Twitter.

Cape Town - Former public protector Thuli Madonsela has advised her successor, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, that an extension of the Zondo Commission's brief will amount to "scope creep".

Zuma had also previously sought to block the release of the 2016 report, entitled "State of Capture", which focused on allegations that Zuma's friends, the businessmen and brothers Ajay, Atul and Rajesh Gupta, had influenced the appointment of ministers.

Madonsela released a report‚ titled State of Capture‚ in November past year concerning allegations of an improper relationship between Zuma‚ other state officials and the Gupta family.

Before taking office, Zuma dismayed the nation during his 2006 rape trial when he told the court he had showered after having unprotected sex with his young HIV-positive accuser to avoid, he said, contracting the virus.

Zuma had, until now, been reluctant to appoint the commission on the basis that he wanted the courts to clarity certain aspects of Madonsela's ruling he was not happy with.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday travelled to South Africa on a three-day official visit aimed at boosting bilateral ties between the two countries. We hope that the NEC will have the backbone to heed calls by Robben Islanders such as Ahmed Kathrada and Laloo Chiba, as well as numerous other veterans, who have called for Zuma to step down.

According to Saxby, "in saying "there should be no area of corruption and culprit that should be spared the extent of this commission of inquiry", Zuma appears to have left the door open to an all-encompassing inquiry that could stretch back to corruption in the apartheid era".

"It is my honest hope that the commission will able to reach many of those areas of concern that may have been reached".

Madonsela says although evidence may have been compromised, the situation "can still be salvaged". On Tuesday evening, a few hours before the ANC's new national executive committee was due to discuss his possible recall, Zuma announced the establishment of the Zondo Commission.

The ANC's elective conference in Johannesburg last month ruled the inquiry should be expedited.
