PRETORIA - The National Prosecuting Authority says criminal investigations against those implicated in the State Capture Commission report must begin soon.
Chief Justice Raymond Zondo handed over the final volume of the report to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Wednesday 22 June.
The NPA said its Investigating Directorate is putting together a task force that will study the findings detailed in the release of the report. The authority’s Spokesperson Mthunzi Mhanga told News24 that some of the cases may require criminal investigations for the purposes of prosecution as the commission did not conduct criminal investigations.

South Africans believe that the investigations into those implicated in the State Capture report will not amount to anything:
“Will the NPA cope?”
“And the slow wheels of justice will grind to a halt, allowing these criminals to laugh all the way to the bank.
“These gangsters will never do anything, they have failed us in taking Cyril Ramamillons to court.”
