DA studying Zuma implementing state capture recommendations judgment

DA studying Zuma implementing state capture recommendations judgment”

Zuma took issue with this remedial action, which was set out in a report titled "The State of Capture", and is set to challenge it in the courts next month.

President Jacob Zuma will today know whether he is compelled to implement the Public Protector's remedial action that called for a commission of inquiry to be established to investigate state capture. "This matter has not been dismissed but has in fact been held back pending the outcome of the President's review application‚ which will be heard at the end of October‚ where we will also be in court to continue this fight for accountability". The DA argued Zuma is compelled to implement the remedial action even though the court still has to consider Zuma's reservations.

Zuma filed only a counterapplication in response to the DA's application, in which he asks for a stay of execution pending a review of the report. "I hand down the judgement", said Judge Motsamai Makume.

Madonsela directed that a commission of inquiry into the allegations of state capture be conducted and that Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng appoint the sole judge to preside over the commission.

He criticised the DA for being "technical" by insisting that the president should have applied for an application to stay the remedial action before his review, saying the result of an earlier interdict and a stay at this stage would be the same. The Nkandla judgment past year held that the public protector's remedial action is binding unless set aside by the court.
