‘Zuma wants to ensure we get the State Capture Inquiry's result after his death’

…it’s an inappropriate attempt to redefine the terms of reference of the investigation to exclude himself or to ensure we get the result, certainly, after his death.

Bonang Mohale, Business Leadership South Africa

After months of court battles and fierce resistance, Jacob Zuma now says he will comply with the Public Protector's recommendation to set up a Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

He says it is South Africans’ concerns over state capture that moved him to comply.

The timing of Zuma’s announcement late on Tuesday is raising many an eyebrow.

Politics professor at the University of Johannesburg, Mcebisi Ndletyana, believes that Zuma is trying to delay his possible impeachment or recall.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Bonang Mohale, the straight-shooting CEO of Business Leadership South Africa.
