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.
