Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan, says South Africa's war against corruption isn't over now that the State Capture Inquiry is ongoing.

According to Gordhan, those who enabled state capture must be held accountable for their role in facilitating the widespread looting of SOEs.

EWN reports that Gordhan said SA must not fool itself into thinking the 'culture of corruption' has come to an end now that state capture has been brought into the light.

Gordhan testified at the state capture inquiry on 19 November. According to an earlier report by Briefly.co.za, those who worked with Gordhan, he was important in protecting the National Treasury against the former president, Jacob Zuma.

The work done by the committee has been good, but more must be done.

We succeeded to work as a team across party lines. We set our differences aside, we had a single goal. Some of the lessons we’ve learnt is that the phenomenon of corruption and state capture is not limited to leadership. It stems from a deep and widespread culture from within institutions.

According to Gordhan, it will take more than a change of boards to clean up state entities.
