Civil Society Working Group on State Capture: Statement – Response to the Zondo Commission’s Report [24 January 2022]

On the 4th of January 2022, the State Capture Inquiry (the Zondo Commission) submitted to the Presidency and publicly released the first of its three-part report. The report sheds light on the far-reaching facts that lay bare the extent of the rot, corruption and capture that have hollowed out the state’s institutions and coffers. The cost of state capture has been felt most severely by the people of South Africa who bear the brunt of the looting. Contemporary state capture has led to deepening levels of inequality, poverty and unemployment, amongst host of other challenges. It is unconscionable that constitutionally enshrined human rights such as health care, social security, housing and basic education have been compromised because of the actions of corrupt individuals and corporations.
