Ramaphosa makes covenant with SA: All #StateCapture criminals must refund stolen funds

The State capture saga has been the greatest challenge threatening the country in recent history.

South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa vowed that his government would recover money stolen through state capture and bring those involved to book.

Addressing the National House of Traditional Leaders in Parliament on Tuesday, Ramaphosa said the state capture project ran deep.

“Our priority must be to uncover all of these networks and expose their activities, bring those responsible to book, recover all stolen funds and take decisive measures to ensure this never happens again,” said Ramaphosa.

The president described chapter nine institutions as the shock absorbers that derailed state looting.

Ramaphosa said there was a need to strengthen chapter nine institutions in the fight against corruption and ensure checks and balances in a democracy.

It was the report of former public protector Thuli Madonsela that recommended in 2016 that a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture be established to get to the bottom of the problem.

Madonsela had also said Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng must appoint a judge to chair the commission.

Ramaphosa said the evidence from the Zondo Commission was concerning to them.

Bombshells have been dropped by former Bosasa chief operations officer Angelo Agrizzi implicating high-ranking ANC officials in corruption.

Bosasa has been dumped by the banks and applied for voluntary liquidation.

Some ANC ministers and ex-ministers have been implicated in the state-capture project allegedly driven by the Guptas.
