Ramaphosa Receives Part 3 of Zondo Commission Report, To Announce Implementation Plan Soon

To those who have been waiting for the third part of the State Capture Commission’s report, there’s reason to be delighted, as President Cyril Ramaphosa has just released it.

The State Capture Commission, also known as the Zondo Commission because it’s headed by Justice Zondo, is empowered to investigate a period in South Africa’s political history when the state appeared to have been pocketed by a few individuals.

Earlier reports have listed the characters the commission said were part of the national heist, as well as recommended what should be done to them.

For instance, the commission had fingered Mzwanele Manyi as one of the enablers of the state capture when he served as director-general of the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS).

At the time the Zondo Commission handed in the second report, the commission had promised to hand in the third installment. It has kept that promise.

The third part of the report focuses on Bosasa and the alleged corruption involving the company. Among those implicated in the corruption are the country’s former president Jacob Zuma and energy minister Gwede Mantashe.

The commission began its inquiry in 2018 but was delayed by several factors, including the coronavirus pandemic. President Ramaphosa is expected to release an implementation plan on the report soon.
