State capture report shows a President gone rogue - Judith February

Analysts have hailed the release of the state capture report as evidence of an objective and transparent judiciary in South Africa.

The State of Capture Report, compiled by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela was released yesterday afternoon after the Pretoria High Court instructed that it be released by 5pm.

This after President Jacob Zuma abandoned his court bid to prevent the report from entering the public domain.

702's John Robbie spoke to senior analyst at the Institute for Security Studies, Judith February, regarding her analysis.

It was a good for democracy. It showed that our courts working in an open and transparent way and let's not forget the role of the media and investigative journalists.

In the 355-page report, Madonsela states Zuma failed to investigate claims of a R600 000 cash offer to deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas from the Guptas, reports of state capture by former government spokesperson Themba Maseko and former member of parliament Vytjie Mentor.

If it were any other country, the President would be writing his resignation letter but this is no country for resignations.

While opposition parties hope that this is the last straw in a string of political scandals under the Zuma administration, it remains a mystery how the ANC will address the matter.
