Former KZN premier supports call for commission of inquiry into state capture
Former KwaZulu-Natal premier, Senzo Mchunu, says he supports the call for a judiciary inquiry into state capture allegations against President Jacob Zuma to do thorough investigation.
Mchunu says he doesn't believe the allegations were "thumb-sucked" and there must a way to "get to the bottom of this".
He says the African National Congress (ANC) needs to own up to its problems and find a solution.
Mchunu says corruption is one of the major reasons why ANC lost support during 2016 local government elections.
Asked by Karima Brown whether he believes Zuma should step down, Mchunu did not have a direct answer.
President Zuma is the leader of the ANC, it's clear that the ANC is experiencing more problems at the moment under his leadership. He [Zuma] is not the only leader. He is leading with collective, the top 6.Senzo Mchunu, former KZN premier and ANC chairperson
But no leader in the collective of six, collectively and individually, will take comfort and not question themselves and their role and contributions when we are experiencing problems of this nature.Senzo Mchunu, former KZN premier and ANC chairperso
The question needs to go back to the top six, and say how do they think they are contributing to the problem or not contributing.Senzo Mchunu, former KZN premier and ANC chairperso
Mchunu is also the former chairperson of the African National Congress in KZN.
Last week Mchunu accompanied Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa when he attended the commemoration of Shembe church founder, Isaiah Shembe, in Empangeni on the KZN north coast.
