Mbeki emphasized that the responsibility now lies with each individual citizen of South Africa to conduct introspective analysis and understand where the nation went wrong in enabling the looting of public resources by private companies.
He stated that there were a lot of issues that needed to be resolved by the country.
"What actually occurred was the South African people allowing for this level of destruction to take place. We were all present in some part of our society at the same time. How can we prevent something like this from happening and ensure our recovery after such a terrible event? ". Mbeki stated.
The Zondo Commission, also known as the state capture commission, is a public inquiry that was established in January 2018 by former President Jacob Zuma to investigate allegations of state capture, corruption, and fraud in the public sector including organs of state in South Africa. This inquiry is also known as the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into allegations of state capture, corruption, and fraud in the public sector including organs of state.
According to the findings of the state capture inquiry, former South African President Jacob Zuma allegedly made it easy for the Gupta family to gain access to state-owned businesses, allowing them to help themselves to the money and assets belonging to the people of South Africa.
