DA opens criminal case against ANC. Here is the breakdown

The Democratic Alliance have officially opened criminal cases against the ANC. This was confirmed by chief whip Natasha Mazzone.

In his report, chief justice Raymond Zondo, who chaired the commission, recommended the ANC be investigated for actively engaging in corrupt activities for its own gain and passivity, which allowed the framework which enabled corruption and state capture to thrive.

Zondo found substantial evidence that the ANC benefited from state capture, “as it received payments from third parties who are alleged to have corruptly acquired government contracts”.

Mazzone’s affidavit raised “evidence” implicating the ruling party in lawbreaking.

The reports of the state capture inquiry provided evidence of corruption, racketeering and looting of public funds, she said.

In the third part of the report, the ANC’s donations from Bosasa were laid bare, Mazzone said.

In the final submissions, Zondo found that witness testimony implicated various ANC leaders in wrongdoing.

Mazzone emphasised the allegations against former president Jacob Zuma, minerals and energy minister Gwede Mantashe, former finance minister Malusi Gigaba and exmineral resources minister Mosebenzi Zwane, who is now an ANC MP.
