It's clear that the world's leaders are keeping a close eye on what's happening with regards to matters like the State Capture Inquiry.
Briefly.co.za gathered that part of the letter reads as follows:
We have been watching the revelations of the Zondo and other commissions very attentively. The commission is also being followed very closely from abroad,
in our home countries. No investor would venture to come to SA without proper and comprehensive guarantees for their investment.
We need to trust sustainable, legal frameworks for domestic activities. Ever-modified rules of the game and changing of the goalposts for mining, BBBEE and intellectual property rights has created uncertainty that hampers investment.
