JOHANNESBURG - The Public Protector has called on President Jacob not to limit the state capture inquiry&39;s terms of reference to issues identified in her predecessor&39;s report.

Busisiwe Mkhwebane says that due to a lack of resources and adequate funds, the state capture investigation focused on only 12 issues.

She has called on Zuma to ensure the terms of reference are broad enough to include the capture of all state institutions and state-owned entities (SOEs).

Mkhwebane has also requested that Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who will head the inquiry, be given the power to expand the issues to be investigated.

Mkhwebane says she is available to help compile the inquiry&39;s terms of reference, if necessary.
