Time not yet ‘ripe’ to release State Capture report

The State Capture report will be released on Wednesday.

This as the Commission had missed the court mandated June 15th deadline.

Presidency spokesperson, Vincent Magwenya says that Chief Justice Raymond Zondo and President Cyril Ramaphosa had met this morning and agreed that the time was not ripe for the report to be released today.

This has raised concern about the fact that the president and chief justice were discussing the timing of the report’s release, rather than adhering to the court mandate.

The fifth instalment of the State Capture report will address the pillaging of the State Security Agency when Jacob Zuma was president of the country. 

The report is expected to implicate former spy chief, Arthur Fraser.

He has since made headlines for laying a criminal claim against President Ramaphosa for failing to report a robbery at his Phala Phala game lodge in February 2020.

The incident has added further dents to the president’s reputation.
