Cosatu calls for swift prosecution of those implicated by Zondo report

If the proposals in the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into the State Detention Report are not implemented, the document will be useless, Cosatu said Thursday President Cyril Ramaphosa was handed over on Tuesday in which senior politicians, businessmen and individuals are implicated in corruption and taxpayer lootings.

Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has chaired the commission for the past four years .

Part 1 of the state arrest report comprises three volumes, focusing on allegations related to SAA and its affiliates, Gupta-owned newspaper The New Age, and alleged abuse of millions von rand in government advertising and at events at the SA Revenue Service.

Pamla welcomed the report and said the proposals were “progressive”.

< p> “The Revision Act was amended in 2018 and allows the state to personally financially liable any politician or manager involved in corruption and wasteful spending.

” The government must be determined in the fight against corruption Show leadership and action and take state imprisonment if we want to turn the tide, “he said.

The SA has struggled to provide jobs, education and affordable health care for its citizens over the past two decades over the looting. < / p>

“We hope that the report is not another waste of money like the report by the Seriti Commission on the arms business.

” The Federation continues to be dissatisfied with the slow progress in prosecuting those responsible for corruption. There are no more excuses. We call for action now. The Zondo Commission has spent a lot of money investigating corruption allegations, and the workers are demanding a value for their taxes. “

Pamla urged Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana, the National Prosecutor’s Office, the Special Investigative Unit and the Directorate for Priority criminal investigation to ensure they appoint enough investigators and prosecutors to deal with complaint-related cases and corruption in general.
