State Capture: The fight for accountability continues
The Democratic Alliance notes with interest the judgement handed down in the North Gauteng High Court this morning.
We elected to take a legal route in order to compel President Jacob Zuma to comply with Public Protector's remedial action as outlined in the Constitutional Court judgment in the Nkandla matter.
On a number of occasions, including before the National Assembly, President Zuma has stated that he will establish a Commission of Inquiry. To date, he has not done so.
President Zuma has a long history of delaying processes, especially in cases of accountability.
This matter has not been dismissed but has in fact been held back pending the outcome of the President's review application, which will be heard at the end of October, where we will also be in court to continue this fight for accountability.
We will study the judgement in full and continue this fight until all individuals and organisations implicated in State Capture are held accountable.
