Inquiry extension granted
PRESIDENT Cyril Ramaphosa has finally complied with a North Gauteng High Court judgment ordering him to extend the term of the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture by 24 months.
On Wednesday, Ramaphosa amended the commission’s terms of reference with effect from November 29 to indicate that it must submit its final report and within a period of 24 months from March 1 this year.
The announcement follows commission chair Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo’s successful urgent high court application in July calling upon persons to show cause on October 2 why the period of 180 days should not be extended by 24 months. |
