President Cyril Ramaphosa will appear before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry Into Allegations of State Capture on April 22, 23, 28 and 29, 2021.
Acting Spokesperson to the President, Tyrone Seale said this is in line with the President’s many public statements in which he has expressed his willingness to testify before the Commission.
The President will give evidence in his capacity as President and former Deputy President of the Republic and as President and former Deputy President of the African National Congress.
The civil rights organisation AfriForum on Monday, 22 March 2021, filed a formal application to the Zondo commission on state capture in terms of which a ruling is requested to subpoena President Cyril Ramaphosa to appear before the commission.
AfriForum specifically asked that Ramaphosa be questioned about the ANC’s cadre deployment policy and also requests that AfriForum be afforded an opportunity to make submissions in this regard to the commission and also itself to cross-examine the president.
