South Africa's Zuma Announces Inquiry Into Alleged "State Capture"

Zuma finally appoints commission of inquiry into state capture

We reiterate our call for Zuma to step down from the highest office in the land as he has not only broken the constitution, but he is at the center of the state of capture investigation itself.

I urge everyone to cooperate with the commission of inquiry.

Maimane pointed out that Zuma was still the subject of legal scrutiny after the North Gauteng High Court recently rejected his legal challenge to the public protector's state capture report‚ which had called for a commission of inquiry to be established.

THE African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) has welcomed President Jacob Zuma's appointment of a Commission of Inquiry on State Capture. "The allegations that the state has been wrestled out of the hands of its real owners, the people of South Africa, is of paramount importance and are therefore deserving of finality and certainty".

Warrants have been obtained for 22-year-old Curtez Woods who has been charged with Armed Robbery Burglary and Aggravated Battery. Maryland State Police are searching for two people wanted for holding up a convenience store in Salisbury late Monday night.

According to Daily Maverick, Zuma's statement in which he announced the inquiry appears to support the idea that the commission should have a broader scope.

She said the commission's goal was to complete her report, and it should deal first with details that had arisen in it.

"The ANCWL is confident that the Commission of Inquiry will not be influenced by any prior judgements passed through courts of public opinions which were instituted by neoliberal media houses", Matuba said in a statement.

This followed Zuma's announcement of his decision to appoint the judicial commission on Tuesday, with Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng selecting his deputy, Raymond Zondo, to head the inquiry.

He said that the leaders will review progress in countries such as Somalia and South Sudan.

After the Constitutional Court found against him, he eventually reimbursed the equivalent of around $500,000 for non-security-related work at his homestead, a sum set by the treasury.

Last month also saw Zuma suffer another blow when his vice-president Cyril Ramaphosa, who campaigned on an anti-corruption ticket, was elected ANC president after seeing off Zuma's former wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

The NEC decides matters by consensus and, in spite of Mr Ramaphosa's victory and the weakening of Mr Zuma's power, is divided between the president's supporters and backers of the new leader.
