PARLIAMENT - President Cyril Ramaphosa has reiterated his commitment to appear before the Zondo commission of inquiry.

He says the fight against corruption can't succeed unless all South Africans are involved. 

Ramaphosa says the same goes for reducing crime.

Replying to the debate on the budget vote of the Presidency, Ramaphosa said he'll ensure law enforcement agencies are properly resourced to prosecute wrongdoers without the direct involvement of the office.

Ramaphosa said the Zondo Commission of Inquiry is the only way to get to the bottom of state capture.

Addressing the DA's concerns, Ramaphosa ruled out doing away with BEE.

He responded to the Freedom Front Plus which called on him to condemn farm murders.

He said, “every life in this country has equal value. Every murder must be equally and unequivocally condemned.”

Ramaphosa added that the deployment of the defence force to the Western Cape is meant to support the police in communities terrorised by crime.
