Zondo Commission says report handover will now be on June 22

A panel that spent almost four years probing state graft in South Africa will hand over the final two volumes of its report to President Cyril Ramaphosa on June 22 in Cape Town.

Due to challenges in processing parts five and six on time for a planned handover on Monday, the event was moved out by two days, Itumeleng Mosala, head of the secretariat of the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, said in an emailed statement. The Presidency will announce the time, he said.

Earlier on Monday, the Presidency said a new date for Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to hand over the final volumes to Ramaphosa would be announced soon. That was after the commission initially said the electronic report would be submitted to the president on Sunday.

The panel probed allegations of corruption during the rule of former President Jacob Zuma. Findings released so far showed evidence of graft and racketeering and made recommendations that law-enforcement agencies investigate several former executives of state-owned companies, ex-ministers and some current members of Ramaphosa’s cabinet.
