CEO Bonang Mohale said it was,
however, that the President had elected to appoint the commission without withdrawing his and ill advised appeal against both the Public Protector remedial action and the North Gauteng High Court ruling.continued appeal opens the Commission to further costly, avoidable and protracted litigation. We are relieved that the latest court ruling by Judge President Dunston Mlambo finally ordered the President to pay the cost of litigation from his own pocket.also strongly condemn the move by the President to seek to rewrite, through stealth, the terms of reference of the Zondo Commission of Inquiry. Both the Public Protector and the North Gauteng High Court made it clear that the former Public Protector State of Capture report had to form the basis of the inquiry. We deem the President remarks, intimating that Justice Zondo should broaden the scope of the inquiry, as an inappropriate attempt to redefine the terms of reference of the investigation. also questioned the timing of the President decision, noting that it had been carried out just weeks after the African National Congress (ANC fifty fourth National Conference and a day before the first meeting of the new ANC National Executive Committee.announcement appears like a cynical ploy to manage intra ANC dynamics instead of advancing what in the best interest of the country. Putting the party interests ahead of the country interests has been the hallmark of this President tenure, the organisation pointed out.The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry also added its voice to the praise chorale, noting that the inquiry should be and ventilate all issues and allegations of State capture that have occupied the minds of South Africans emphasised that the corrective action and remedies needed to be clearly defined.Also weighing in on the matter, civil rights organisation AfriForum said the President statement was that the State machine is failing BLSA view, AfriForum pointed out that Zuma was the mandate [for the inquiry] wide his statement, Zuma pointed out that commission must seek to uncover not just the conduct of some,
but all of those who may have rendered the State or parts thereof vulnerable to control by forces other than the public for which government is elected He added that no culprit or area of corruption should be spared by the commission.
