Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - METRO - Loy­iso Sidimba

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. |
