Wichard Mgaga Gaut­eng The in­ten­tion of the pro­posed in­ves­ti­ga­tion is to di­vert the at­ten­tion of the state cap­ture in­ves­ti­ga­tion to pro­tect Ja­cob Zuma and his cor­rupt al­lies. Vic Masima KwaZulu-Na­tal It would be lu­di­crous to in­ves­ti­gate a sus­pected crime that is in the pub­lic do­main on con­di­tion of in­ves­ti­gat­ing other un­known crimes. No one crime should be au­then­ti­cated by other crimes for it to be a crime. Some peo­ple are play­ing brinkman­ship and hide-and-seek with the lives and liveli­hoods of mil­lions of their so-called peo­ple. Gwen­do­line Gaut­eng When did the MPs know about the shenani­gans at these in­sti­tu­tions and why did they not re­port them? Any­way, if these MPs have gen­uine rea­sons for the in­ves­ti­ga­tion then it should be con­ducted, but only af­ter that of the state cap­ture/Gup­tas has been com­pleted. Another in­ves­ti­ga­tion should also be con­ducted against these MPs to de­ter­mine if they have not con­tra­vened the Preven­tion and Com­bat­ing of Cor­rupt Ac­tiv­i­ties Act by not re­port­ing what­ever it is they think that these

They must re­port it to the SA Po­lice Ser­vice for it to in­ves­ti­gate and not try to de­rail the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor be­cause it will not work. Gao­latlhe North West I strongly agree that other fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions should be probed, but the case should be han­dled as it emerges. These MPs must not cloud mat­ters. They are do­ing that be­cause they know that we are led by cor­rupt de­ployed com­rades. Re­mem­ber the min­is­ter of so­cial de­vel­op­ment once said that in the ANC they all have skele­tons? Per­ci­val Klaaste Eastern Cape There is no merit to the MPs’ re­quest. Zandile Gaut­eng Yes, fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions should be probed. Jackie Gaut­eng I don’t un­der­stand why other in­sti­tu­tions should be probed when it is clear that the Gup­tas are the ones who are cor­rupt­ing our coun­try and have cap­tured some of the state in­sti­tu­tions. Mbin­geleli Vat­sha KwaZulu-Na­tal I am to­tally against what was done by the MPs, and I am also against hav­ing the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions probed. That will dis­tract from the in­quiry to be car­ried out. Mncedo Kupi Gaut­eng The probe was about state cap­ture by the Gup­tas, Zuma and a few ANC NEC mem­bers. The fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions should not be probed.
