The former Eskom group CEO Matshela Koko has taken Twitter to argue that no one deserves amnesty for being corrupt. The comments of Matshela Koko comes after there has been some numerous articles which have proposed that South Africa should seriously consider adopting a conditional amnesty process for those who committed acts of corruption during the era of State Capture.

The debate around the proposal of amnesty for those implicated in the state capture began to take centre stage after the commission of inquiry into allegations of state capture handed its final report to the president. However, readers should be reminded that the proposal was first initiated before the Covid-19 could hit South Africa. And the debate on an amnesty proposal then went largely silent, no doubt because of the diversion of attention and resources to the Covid-19 pandemic and the movement restrictions brought by the lockdowns we endured.

And now, the debate on amnesty has gained some attention. Matshela Koko seems to be of different view, when it comes to the proposal of amnesty for those implicated in the state capture report. He (Matshela Koko) has asserted that the law should take its cause. The former Eskom group CEO was reacting to an article which talked extensively about the proposal of amnesty for those who committed acts of corruption during the era of State Capture.

In part, Matshela Koko said " No deserves amnesty for being corrupt. The law must bite."

However, it remains to be seen how will things unfold in the coming weeks and months, since the commission of inquiry into allegations of state capture has since, handed over its final report.
