Zizi Kodwa: Only one written submission to the ANC on state capture allegations

The office of African National Congress Secretary General, Gwede Mantashe, received one written submission on reports of alleged state capture.

Mantashe's office conducted an investigation into the claims after Deputy Finance Minister, Mcebisi Jonas, revealed that the Guptas had offered him the position of Finance Minister before Nhlanhla Nene was fired in December 2015.

In a press briefing on Tuesday, Mantashe revealed that eight people appoached his office, however, only one person was willing to submit a written report.

ANC says the corporate state capture investigation will not continue and complainants must report to SAPS or Hawks.

702's John Robbie spoke to National Spokesperson for the governing party, Zizi Kodwa, about how they will take the matter forward.

Listen to the interview below:

We were hoping that those who made the allegations will be bold enough to state in detail of what the allegations were exactly about.

Zizi Kodwa, ANC Spokesperson

The allegations are quite serious and I don't think we must underestimate them as an organisation going forward.

Zizi Kodwa, ANC National Spokesperson

Kodwa refused to confirm if Deputy Finance Minister, Mcebisi Jonas, former ANC Member of Parliament, Vytjie Mentor, and government spokesperson, Themba Maseko, were among the group of eight individuals who approached the party.

We don't think it will help us as an organisation because many of them are raising issues of protection, they are raising issues of security.
