Zuma finally appoints commission of inquiry into state capture
Mkhwebane, a former State Security Agency (SSA) employee, offered Zuma her assistance in developing the terms of reference for Deputy Chief Justice Ray Zondo's inquiry into state capture, adding that it should not be limited to the issues investigated or identified by Madonsela's probe.
Zuma had challenged the right of the Public Protector to call for a judicial inquiry and the appointment by the chief justice of a judge to head it, saying it was the president's prerogative whether to set up such an inquiry.
"The matter can not wait any longer", he said, adding: "I have made a decision to appoint a commission of inquiry".
President Jacob Zuma in the face of increased pressure to step down announced the establishment of a commission of inquiry into "state capture" to be headed by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
She has called on Zuma to ensure the terms of reference are broad enough to include the capture of all state institutions and state-owned entities (SOEs).
This is according to Legalbrief legal expert, Pam Saxby, who said that a key sentence in the lengthy statement could be interpreted as a precursor of what is to come when the terms of reference of the commission are decided.
"We reiterate the views of Madonsela that the commission should focus specifically on state capture under President Zuma, and must investigate the allegations of state capture against the Gupta family".
He will also attend the ANC's 106th anniversary celebrations in East London on Saturday.
Ramaphosa is set to distance himself from Zuma as the ANC seeks to retain its absolute majority in next year's general elections even if the latter still retains a constituency of support within the movement after 10 years as its leader.
An NEC member, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the party's Top Six confined the meeting's agenda to the preparation of the January 8 statement when it finalised it on Tuesday night.
It had been suggested that Wednesday's meeting of the ANC national executive committee might be used to sack Mr Zuma for failing to follow party orders to establish the inquiry, allowing Mr Ramaphosa to succeed him.
Zuma's supporters say he is not going anywhere and have vowed to defend him.
