Ramaphosa promises scorpion-style unit to tackle corruption
The NPA will set up a special unit to deal with corruption and associated offences coming out of the state capture commission.
During the State of the Nation Address in the National Assembly on Thursday evening, Ramaphosa said there is an urgent need to establish in the office of the NDPP an investigating directorate dealing with serious corruption and associated offences, in accordance with section 7 of the NPA Act.
In broad terms, the Directorate will focus on the evidence that has emerged from the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, other commissions and disciplinary inquiries.President Cyril Ramaphosa, Sona 2019
