Ex South African Ombud Welcomes 'Late' Zuma State Capture Probe

A commission of inquiry appointed by Deputy Chief Justice Ray Zondo may only focus on state capture allegedly committed by the Zuma and Gupta families, which former public protector Thuli Madonsela has said was "better late than never". This comes after President Zuma made an annoucement allowing Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng to select a judge to head a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture, a recommendation originally made by Madonsela in her 'State of Capture' report which probed alleged undue influence of the Gupta family over high ranking government officials.
