Zuma Associates to Dodge South African State Capture Commission?
At the end of April 2021, the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture ceases public hearings. As matters currently stand, South Africa will not get to see a member of the family at the heart of corruption allegations, the Guptas, give testimony. This while their ally, former president Jacob Zuma faces jail time as he continues to resist his own appearance in violation of a Constitutional Court order, writes Jessica Bezuidenhout for Daily Maverick.
The Gupta family immigrated to South Africa in the 1990s and managed to expand their business interests through their alleged close ties with Zuma. The former president is accused of having "sold executive power" to the controversial family, whose ties to high-ranking officials have been examined in the Zondo Commission's probe into alleged state capture.
