President Cyril Ramaphosa will on Wednesday and Thursday appear before the state capture inquiry in his capacity as head of state and former deputy president.
The presidency announced in a statement on Tuesday afternoon that Ramaphosa will appear before the commission on Wednesday 11 August and Thursday 12 August.
“The Commission has indicated that the first part of his appearance will cover matters that were outstanding following his appearance on behalf of the African National Congress on 28-29 April 2021. Thereafter the Commission will proceed with matters relating to his positions in the State,” the Presidency said.
“The President’s appearance before the Commission follows an undertaking that he made in 2018 to provide the Commission with any information and assistance it may seek in the fulfilment of its mandate.”
The Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture and Corruption proceedings are scheduled to start at 9am on Wednesday and Thursday.
Ramaphosa was Deputy President during Jacob Zuma’s nine-year presidential term in South Africa. During this period the Guptas and their associates allegedly looted the state until information about their activities in the country leaked and became public knowledge, resulting in the Zondo Commission of inquiry to get to the roots and concerns over graft and misappropriation.
