SA President to Receive Report on Alleged Corruption

 
A South African judicial panel that examined allegations of high-level corruption during former President Jacob Zuma’s tenure will hand over the first of its three-part report to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday.

The panel was chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo and has been investigating allegations of “state capture”, corruption and fraud in the public sector during Zuma’s time in power between 2009 and 2018.

The remaining parts of the report are expected to be handed over to Mr.

Ramaphosa before the end of next month.

The group Democracy in Action has filed a case at the high court in Johannesburg against the submission of the report to Mr.

Ramaphosa, arguing he “is conflicted” and had been implicated in corruption.

Mr.

Ramaphosa has previously said he “resisted” corruption whilst he served as Mr.

Zuma’s deputy, according to the Reuters News agency.

Zuma is accused, among other things, of ‘allowing an Indian business family with close links to him to siphon state assets.


The former president and the family deny any wrongdoing.

He was sentenced to 15 months in prison in June after he failed to attend the inquiry, arguing that the chair of the panel was biased.

Zuma resigned in 2018, a year before his second term in office was due to end.
