ANC women's league backs inquiry into state capture

Zuma finally appoints commission of inquiry into state capture

Matuba said with the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture about to resume, the ANCWL was hopeful everyone with evidence would come forward and make submissions.

Former public protector Thuli Madonsela also pointed out that the commission of inquiry may only focus on state capture allegedly committed by the Zuma and Gupta families, reported News24.

Ramaphosa, who is also deputy president, publicly supports Zuma, whose term does not officially end until 2019 when elections will be held, but he could be removed early through a motion of no confidence in parliament or at the ANC meeting.

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.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) - South Africa's president said Tuesday he is appointing a commission of inquiry to look into corruption allegations that have led to calls for his ouster and weakened the ruling party, declaring "this matter can not wait any longer".

UCT constitutional law expert Prof Pierre de Vos sheds some light.

Zuma said he would appoint a commission of inquiry into allegations that the Gupta family was allowed to influence state decisions and that he would abide by a court ruling for the Chief Justice to select its leader. If his appeal is successful the appointment of the commission will be unconstitutional and invalid and would have to be disbanded. Zuma lost that application but said he intends appealing.

"While it is a step in the right direction, we still require details about the terms of reference and scope of the commission".

I have only appealed the orders to the extent that they set a particular precedent for the Office of the President of the Republic and are indeed deserving of legal certainty.

"Discussions towards elevating the Joint Commission for Cooperation between Kenya and South Africa to Special Status Agreement will be a key agenda of the visit to South Africa".

"Kenyan exports to South Africa face high tariffs and levies which inhibit access to the South African market by Kenyan investors", said the minister in the statement from her ministry.

"Such broad terms would have the potential to bog down the inquiry, rendering it ineffective, but whether Zuma will emerge from this week's ANC conference in East London with enough power to influence the terms of reference will be instructive", she said. However, trade balance is heavily in favour of South Africa partly due to poor market access and partly due to Kenya's reliance on the export of primary or semi processed products while South Africa exports high value products, " she added.

Zuma had, until now, been reluctant to appoint the commission on the basis that he wanted the courts to clarity certain aspects of Madonsela's ruling he was not happy with.
