Create a 'special jail' for the corrupt, - Makhura
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier David Makhura says those implicated in state capture should be thrown into a “special jail”.
“Two weeks ago, I visited Brazil. It has a special prison for all those who are corrupt. We must build one similar prison.”
Makhura was addressing thousands of COSATU and SACP members who marched on his office on Wednesday against state capture.
But while the address by Makhura, who is also Deputy Chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng, resonated with the crowd, he omitted to reveal the possible candidates for that prison.
“I am not captured. They tried and I refused to be captured.”
Without mentioning the Gupta family by name, Makhura told the cheering crowd that a failed attempt had been made on him and members of his government.
In an apparent endorsement of the COSATU and SACP campaign, Makhura said “state capture warranted the attention of us as leadership of government and alliance partners”. He said everyone in government had to deal with corruption and overcome it. While Makhura was given 14 days to respond to the demands, he assured the marchers that their copy of demands was going to reach the office of President Jacob Zuma before noon on Wednesday.The Star
