JOHANNESBURG – President Jacob Zuma says he plans to institute an inquiry into state capture.
The President, however, said he won&39;t be a part of the inquiry.
He&39;s indicated he would do so within 30 days of the North Gauteng High Court ruling on his review, in his favour.
“Having announced an intention to appoint a commission of inquiry, it is recorded that the President will proclaim a commission of inquiry within 30 days of this order,” read a draft order that Zuma&39;s lawyers presented to the court.
Zuma also wants Mkhwebane to investigate alleged ethics violations that the Gupta family influenced Cabinet appointments.
Last week, Zuma&39;s lawyers dropped his application for the state capture investigation to go back to the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Zuma has fought for parts of former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela&39;s State of Capture report to be set aside.
