The African National Congress notes the start of the Zondo Commission on State Capture this week. The National Executive Committee of the ANC in May 2017 endorsed the establishment of such a judicial commission, so that the facts and truth can come to light.
The ANC urges its members and others who are summoned to appear before the Commission to offer their full cooperation to the Commission, so that the country can deal with this difficult chapter.
The Commission will assist to ensure that where wrongdoing was done, appropriate action is taken and people are held accountable.
The allegations and reports on this matter have done immense damage to the image of the country and the confidence of ordinary citizens in state institutions. It is, therefore, crucial to ensure that the Commission completes its work expeditiously.
