The South African Communist Party in Gauteng will stage a protest march to the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on State Capture, underway in Parktown Johannesburg.
It’s calling on the commission led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to include all corporate capture of the state in its investigation.
The SACP’s Jacob Mamabolo says the commission has an obligation to uproot all parasitic networks of corruption in state departments. Friday, former Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas is expected to testify to the commission about how he was allegedly offered the position of Finance Minister and a bribe by the Gupta family and Duduzane Zuma.
Jonas alleges that in 2015, the Gupta family offered him an initial R600 000 cash, and then a substantial amount to be given later, if he accepted the job of finance minister.
