Protector asks Zuma to widen terms of inquiry into state capture

Zuma unsuccessfully challenged Madonsela's report in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria last month.

While the president has appealed the cost order and the judgment regarding the duties of the president to appoint commissions, he said in a statement on Tuesday he is taking further legal advice on this. "The #GuptaLeaks has revealed much, and in some cases it is not necessary to wait for the inquiry to take place for prosecution to occur". I am concerned that this matter has occupied the public mind for some time now and deserves urgent attention. "Should the commission come across state capture allegations that are not incidental to the main allegations or matters identified for investigation in the report, those will be scope creep", Madonsela said.

"The Democratic Alliance (DA) welcomes the eventual decision by President Jacob Zuma‚ after all his efforts to delay have failed‚ to appoint a commission of inquiry into state capture‚ as per the public protector's State of Capture report‚" Maimane said in a statement.

Accordingly, I have decided that, while the issues determined by the order require final determination by higher courts, this matter can not wait any longer. "His hand has been forced‚ as he knew he had no further avenue for delay".

Mkhwebane said the ability of the commission to uncover the full extent of state capture in South Africa should not be constrained in any way.

Owing to the lack of resources and the inadequacy of the allocated funds, the State of Capture investigation had focused on 12 issues only, she said.

She said the president should ensure that the commission head, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, had the power to expand the issues to be investigated should any relevant evidence of state capture be brought to him during the inquiry.

Accordingly, by making more resources available, it is my honest hope that the commission, will be able to reach many of those areas of concern that may not have been reached by the Public Protector's investigation, but form part of what she might have investigated, had she had sufficient resources to do so.

Cape Town - Within hours of a commission of inquiry into state capture being announced, the battle began over the crucial question of exactly what should be investigated.
