South Africa's Zuma to set up inquiry into graft claims

Jacob Zuma relents on inquiry into South African state capture
"It is of such serious public concern that any further delay will make the public doubt government's determination to dismantle all forms of corruption and entrench the public perception that the state has been captured by private interests for nefarious and self enrichment purposes".
Balton added that while the establishment of the inquiry was in keeping with the State of Capture report's remedial recommendations, it was disappointing that action was taken by the President only after a court ruling compelled him to do so.
While the South African media is interpreting president Jacob Zuma's announcement of a state capture inquiry as a sign of his capitulation, the devil may yet be found to be lurking in the detail.
Zuma said he would appoint a commission of inquiry into allegations that the Gupta family was allowed to influence state decisions and that he would abide by a court ruling for the Chief Justice to select its leader.
Madonsela released a report‚ titled State of Capture‚ in November a year ago concerning allegations of an improper relationship between Zuma‚ other state officials and the Gupta family.
The Guptas relocated to South Africa from India in 1993 and have allegedly used their vast wealth to wield influence over the government. "The Court also ordered that I should personally pay the costs of the review". He, as well as the controversial Gupta family and other members of the Zuma family, are named in the report.

Before taking office, Zuma dismayed the nation during his 2006 rape trial when he told the court he had showered after having unprotected sex with his young HIV-positive accuser to avoid, he said, contracting the virus.
"I am concerned that this matter has occupied the public mind for some time now and deserves urgent attention".
The EFF will monitor the processes closely, in particular that the commission sticks to the terms of reference as recommended by the Public Protector's State of Capture Report. We agree with Madonsela that the President has the prerogative to set up other commissions that focus on pre-1994 cases of state capture.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Mkhwebane said Zuma should not limit the terms of reference for a commission of inquiry into state capture to the findings of her predecessor Thuli Madonsela's report, but ensure the terms are broad enough to cover allegations concerning the state and all its entities.
"It is my honest hope that the commission will able to reach many of those areas of concern that may have been reached". "His hand has been forced", said Mmusi Maimane, leader of the main opposition Democratic Alliance.
