The African National Congress (ANC) is giving those members implicated in the State capture report two months to present themselves to the party’s Integrity Commission.

The ANC said on Wednesday that while some of the findings in the report were unsettling for the party, it was using the report to identify and address shortcomings.

Implicated members are being urged to immediately approach the Integrity Commission, which has six months to complete its work, or face disciplinary action.

The final report, which was presented to President Cyril Ramaphosa by Justice Raymond Zondo makes critical findings about the ANC, the government it leads and individual ANC members.

The ANC said it had consistently maintained that the Commission was a necessary part of the broader social effort to end all forms of State capture and corruption.

The ANC has devised an “action plan” to immediately respond to the State capture report.

The constitutional, legislative and structural changes proposed by the Zondo Commission had been referred to the relevant ANC National Executive  Committee (NEC) committees for deliberation.

“By way of example, the NEC Economic Transformation Committee is considering the recommendations from the commission on public procurement. As another example, the NEC Peace and Stability Committee and the NEC Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee are together considering the recommendations around a new anti-corruption agency, the protection of whistle-blowers and deferred prosecution agreements, among others,” the party said.

The ANC has given its committees a deadline of August.

The ANC’s task team on State capture will make recommendations relating to weaknesses or lapses by the ANC. The State capture report highlighted cadre deployment as a serious enabler of State capture.

The party said it would review its policies, including cadre deployment.

“The ANC firmly believes that the work and findings of the State Capture Commission provide an opportunity for South Africa to make a decisive break with the era of state capture. While there may not be consensus on all the commission’s recommendations, they lay the basis for a comprehensive set of actions to prevent corruption and end state capture. As the African National Congress, we are determined to seize this opportunity for renewal, for the sake of our organisation and the sake of our country,” it said.

The ANC has also released a discussion document on corruption and State capture to stimulate debate between its structures and the public.

“The document recognises that the fundamental renewal of the ANC as an effective agent of transformation requires that the organisation confronts corruption in all its forms – in government, society and within the movement. It outlines what the ANC understands by state capture, its causes and impact, and details how such acts of corruption stand in stark contradiction to the ANC’s foundational principles and mission,” the party said.
