MPs ask whether Zuma will really appoint inquiry into state capture if he himself is implicated

Members of Parliament (MPs) asked deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa whether President Zuma would really appoint a commission of inquiry into state capture when he was implicated in those allegations himself.

The Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) Floyd Shivambu asked if Ramaphosa thought it was morally justifiable and rational for the President to establish a commission to investigate allegations in which he himself is implicated. Ramaphosa said that President Zuma was applying his mind to the matter.

Ramaphosa made a plea with the National Assembly to allow the process to unfold. He added that the question of the President’s morality could be addressed if and when the process had failed. Ramaphosa added that according to the Constitution a commission of inquiry could only be established by the President.

Ramaphosa added that there were additional investigations into state capture being conducted by criminal and justice bodies.

Fin24.com reports that Ramaphosa was answering a series of questions by MPs in Parliament on Wednesday. These included questions about state capture and whether he knew anything about the alleged undue influence the Gupta family had at Eskom.

MPs also grilled Ramaphosa about the progress of reforms that were to be implemented to ensure that State-owned-enterprises were run better.

Should President Zuma appoint a commission of inquiry or should that be done by Chief Justice Mogoeng as recommended in the State Capture Report. Please let us know what you think.
