She added:

“Can we be taken into confidence on why President Zuma appointed then Deputy Chief Justice Zondo to head the Commission knowing then they had what he regarded as a close relationship? Why did he not disclose this relationship to Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.”

Madonsela encouraged South Africans to keep their eyes on the ball to ensure justice is served. She said that citizens owe justice to themselves, each other, the children, and generations to come. The former public protector added if South Africans don’t ensure the State Capture Report is implemented, another state capture could be loading.
