Seriti Commission on arms deal - R113 million later - finds no wrongdoing

President Jacob Zuma released findings of the judicial commission of inquiry into South Africa’s arms deal.

The President says the Seriti Commission found no evidence of wrongdoing in the procurement of weapons for South Africa.

This huge deal was riddled with allegations of corruption since it was concluded in 1999.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed arms deal activist Terry Crawford-Browne.

Crawford-Browne approached the Constitutional Court to force Government to appoint an independent commission of inquiry into the arms deal.

Scroll down for quotes from the audio below in which Crawford-Browne reacts to the outcome of the commission.

This is as we expected.
