Investigative journalist at Scorpio, Pauli van Wyk says parts of the terms of reference for the State Capture inquiry are too broad.
The Justice Department released the terms of reference on Thursday after President Jacob Zuma appointed Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to chair the inquiry.
The commission will investigate whether Zuma or any other senior state official violated the law in awarding tenders to the Guptas, any other family, individual or corporate entity doing work with the government.
There are at least two to three that I think may be worrying.— Pauli van Wyk, investigative journalist at Scorpio
Something like 'to investigate all corruption in state owned enterprises' which can be extremely broad. And the problem with being broad is that it's extremely time consuming.— Pauli van Wyk, investigative journalist at Scorpio
The second problem that we have with that, is the commission of inquiry led by Judge Zondo can't stand in for the work that the Hawks or the police should do.— Pauli van Wyk, investigative journalist at Scorpio
