Civil society partners Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Primerio International, Accountability Now and the University of Cape Town recently came together in February 2023, to present a conference on critical aspects of the reform of the criminal justice administration in South Africa.
Chief Justice Zondo was scathing in his final report of the State Capture Commission, pointing to industrial scale fraud, looting, corruption, and massive deficit in integrity, accountability and hence governance, leading to citizens being unable to access their basic human rights as enshrined in our Constitution. President Ramaphosa himself, when receiving the final report, expressed the deep sense of shame, embarrassment and betrayal by the governing party, and many leaders in Government and the private sector, implicated in state capture, corruption and wrongdoing, and invited citizens with the requisite skills and expertise to come forward in helping to fix the country and society broken by the state capture project.
