South Africa: Zuma Launches State Capture Inquiry

13 January, 2018, 01:10 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
  • President Jacob Zuma

He said further delays in appointing the commission would make the public doubt the government's commitment to dismantling "all forms of corruption" and entrench "the perception" that the state has been captured by private interests.

Balton added that while the establishment of the inquiry was in keeping with the State of Capture report's remedial recommendations, it was disappointing that action was taken by the President only after a court ruling compelled him to do so.

The State House in a statement issued before Kenyatta's departure said the Kenyan leader will hold talks with his host, South African President Jacob Zuma on a wide range of areas including trade, security and infrastructure development.

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.

Trump administration opens the way for a Medicaid work requirement
Under the Affordable Care Act, the program has expanded in more than 30 states to cover residents with somewhat higher incomes. Other states to receive approval are Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Utah and Wisconsin.

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 previous year following the retirement of Dikgang Moseneke.

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

South Africa gained independence in 1994. 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.

In 2016, then public protector Thuli Madonsela released an explosive State of Capture report, alleging that members of the Gupta family were using their proximity to Zuma to score lucrative business deals for their companies with state-owned enterprises, as well as allegedly influencing the appointment of Cabinet ministers. Zuma lost that application but said he intends appealing.

He added: "I would be proud ... but trust me, I had nothing to do with it ". "I don't think I have anything to do with it'". For years now Khloe Kardashian , 33, has had to fight off rumors that her biological dad is O.J.

Mkhwebane has called on Zuma to ensure that Zondo has the power to "expand the issues to be investigated, should any relevant evidence of state capture be brought to him during the inquiry", an approach Madonsela differs from vehemently.

"I am concerned that this matter has occupied the public mind for some time now and deserves urgent attention", Zuma said.

On Tuesday, Zuma said that he only appealed the orders to the extent that "they set a particular precedent for the Office of the President of the Republic and are indeed deserving of legal certainty".

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