Setting aside the findings of the commission into the arms deal offers an opportunity to cast the net wider says Andrew Feinstein, arms trade activist and author of The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade.

He talks to Upfront's Refilwe Moloto about details of the two-decades-long investigation into South Africa's arms deal.
