Twitter reacts to announcement of state capture commission

Jacob Zuma BRICS Business Council meeting

Meanwhile, President Jacob Zuma will lead a South African delegation to the thirtieth edition of the African Union (AU) Summit, in Addis Ababa, in Ethiopia from January 22 to 29.

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

The political turmoil over the numerous corruption allegations has hurt South Africa's economy, which briefly dipped into recession previous year. Several of Zuma's children served as directors of companies owned by the Gupta's.

Stocks were little changed with South African-listed Steinhoff shares weighing on the market.

Speaking to the Dispatch in Duncan Village during a door-to-door visit to child-headed households on Tuesday‚ ANCYL secretary-general Njabulo Nzuza said anyone who called for Zuma's removal would be "vindictive".

"There should be no area of corruption and culprit that should be spared the extent of this commission of inquiry", he added. Cyril Ramaphosa can't be saddled with a party riddled with the question of Jacob Zuma so soon after coming in with a fairly narrow majority and sitting with a top six that is fairly split down the middle and an NEC that's also fairly split down the middle.

The sources all agreed that it was now a matter of when, and not if, Zuma stepped down.

"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".

He said the commission should "seek to uncover not just the conduct of some, but of all those who may have rendered our state or parts thereof vulnerable to control by forces other than the public for which government is elected".

The Deputy President led the delegation to the 2017 Davos meeting as well. "But better late than never".

Madonsela says although evidence may have been compromised, the situation "can still be salvaged". However, Zuma appealed two days after the conference.
