JOHANNESBURG – President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office has declined to respond to media queries about state capture commission chairperson Raymond Zondo’s finding against him.

In his final report, Zondo found that Ramaphosa lied when he was asked about the work of the high-level review panel on the State Security Agency. The President said the panel was at an advanced stage, however, Zondo assessed evidence to the contrary.

Ramaphosa appeared at the commission in both his roles as head of state and ANC president.

The Presidency said the country must wait for four months before he announces his intentions about what to do regarding all the state capture commission findings.

Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has received praise for his handling of the state capture commission from various quarters in society including political parties, civil society organisations, the labour movement and business forums.

There are exceptions though like the EFF which has accused Zondo of interfering in ANC factional politics through the work of the commission. This is despite the chief justice having found wrong-doing by various ANC leaders aligned to opposing factions.

“The President has committed to consider the commission’s report in its totality and to present a comprehensive response and implementation plan to Parliament,” said presidential spokesperson, Vincent Mangwenya.

The President’s response to Zondo’s findings is expected to be detailed to Parliament in four months.
