Earlier, Briefly News reported that Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo wrote in the first section of the State Capture Report that the African National Congress (ANC) were either overwhelmed by state capture or indifferent to it.
Zondo cited SAA, SARS, Eskom and Denel as examples to substantiate his argument. The deputy chief justice believes that these entities fell victim to corruption and tender fraud.
According to News24, these entities gradually became run down over time, and the ANC did not pay attention to it, writes Zondo.
Corruption and maladministration was at SAA even before Dudu Myeni says, Sacca
Speaking of the state capture report, earlier Briefly News reported that the South African Cabin Crew Association (Sacca) has stated that the destruction and the maladministration of South African Airways were at the hands of a lot more people than those mentioned in the State Capture Report.
The report was handed over to President Cyril Ramaphosa by Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Tuesday, 4 January at the Union Buildings in Tshwane. A digital copy of the report was later made available for the perusal of the South African public later that night.
The State Capture Report places the former SAA boss, Dudu Myeni and the former SAA Techincal head, Yakhe Kwinana at the helm of the apparent corruption and misuse of a state-owned entity.
