South African President Sets up Commission to Investigate Corruption

The North Gauteng High Court ordered Zuma to personally pay the costs of the review of former public protector Thuli Madonsela's recommendations on alleged state capture.

Zuma said on Tuesday night that Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng had selected Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to head the commission of inquiry.

Soon after the ruling, Zuma applied to appeal the ruling, saying the decision to call for a commission of inquiry into state capture was based on "untested suspicions" and "prima facie evidence".

Madonsela said she had clarity on what the terms of reference should be: what she investigated. "There is no room to expand the commission to include what was never investigated", she said.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa on Wednesday wrote to Zondo. Zuma wanted Madonsela's remedial action set aside.

"It is the work of the former Public Protector, her findings and remedial actions which saw the UDM and other parties in and out of court to force the matter to fruition; we have at last reached that point, where the truth will be revealed", wrote Holomisa.

"Such broad terms would have the potential to bog down the inquiry, rendering it ineffective, but whether Zuma will emerge from this week's ANC conference in East London with enough power to influence the terms of reference will be instructive", she said.
