The Commission of Inquiry into the alleged state capture is still awaiting for President Jacob Zuma to finalise and furnish it with the terms of reference.
On the 9th of January, President Zuma announced that Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo would head the commission. This follows the recommendations by the former Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela after the release of the report titled “State of Capture” in October 2016.
The report stems from the investigations into claims that the Gupta family abused their friendship with President Zuma to, amongst others, influence the appointment of cabinet ministers and were financially benefiting from multi-million rand tenders at state-owned enterprises.
Briefing the media in Midrand, north of Johannesburg, Deputy Chief Justice Zondo said, like many South Africans, he views the allegations of state capture in a serious light and is ready to get on with the task to investigate all allegations.
