The Presidency officially received and publicly released the second part of the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector on Tuesday afternoon at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Part two of what is now colloquially referred to as the Zondo report is made up of two volumes – one on Transnet and the other on Denel.

Secretary of the Commission Professor Itumeleng Mosala presented the second part of the report to the director-general in the Presidency Phindile Baleni.

It comes less than a month after President Cyril Ramaphosa received the first part of the report from acting Chief Justice and Commission chair Judge Raymond Zondo on January 4.

The commission has until the end of February to submit its full report.

“The handover of the second part of the report of the Commission of Inquiry is another significant step forward in the work we need to do to rid our country of corruption,” Ramaphosa said in a statement on Tuesday.

“During the course of the past four years the Commission has constructed a disturbing picture of the depth and damage of state capture.

“We should now apply our energies to the Commission’s recommendations and take the necessary steps to make sure we never face this onslaught on public resources and on the fabric of our society,” added Ramaphosa.

What a blast!

Not only has no one been arrested, taken to court and jailed after the first tome was presented, but now they have an Oscar award-like ceremony for the second useless ream of paper that, if they had simply gone into their nearest branch of Exclusive Books and bought the many extremely well documented publications on the sad looting of the economy, or subscribed to MW for a bargain price of R63 a month, they could have saved us thousands of hours of boring TV and a billion rands in costs.

Yes …. sigh again.

Besides the usual suspects, several corporations come under the spotlight.

Could the NPA not at least start with 5 of the biggest and 5 of the most audacious offences? There are probably lots of investigations but at least get preservation orders, announce names, add them to blaclists? It is not as if these people do not know that we know.
