President Ramaphosa Appoints Anti-Corruption Advisory Team (News Central TV)

To aid in the battle against corruption, President Cyril Ramaphosa has chosen nine individuals to create an anti-corruption advisory group.

The National Anti-Corruption Advisory Council’s mandate is to stop state capture from happening again in South Africa.

The team will support the government, civil society, and corporate sector in implementing the anti-corruption plan effectively.

The group will also advise the president on how the government should respond to putting the Zondo Commission report’s recommendations into action.

President Ramaphosa has until October 22 to inform the legislature of how his administration would put the report’s recommendations into practice.

It should be recalled that the Hawks, an elite police force, detained two former top officials from South Africa’s state-owned ports and freight train operator Transnet for alleged corruption under former President Jacob Zuma.

Anoj Singh, the company’s top financial officer, and Brian Molefe, its CEO, were both famously detained early on Monday morning.

Both parties have been implicated in a high-profile fraud and corruption case involving the purported payment of a bribe to a company in order to purchase more than 1,000 trains.

The arrests follow the hearing of incriminating evidence concerning how executives from various government-owned entities were involved in corruption by the judicial committee of inquiry headed by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

Top leaders of the ruling ANC party, private businesspeople, and individuals connected to former President Zuma, who was overthrown in 2018, allegedly benefitted from the corruption.
