Jail those involved in corruption! - Trevor Manuel

Change that will lead to inclusive growth – that’s what is meant by “radical economic transformation”.

So said President Jacob Zuma at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa summit in Durban on Thursday.

Also at WEF, former Finance Minister Trevor Manuel echoed Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa's call for a “completely independent” judicial commission of inquiry into state capture.

This report, called the State of Capture report, fingers our public utilities as a nest of corruption… We need to show South Africans that we care about the poor and jail those involved in corruption.
