Mpumlwana described what he calls a "standard pattern" of dubious events which lead to looting at state-owned enterprises.

He says the trend is for new ministers to be appointed, followed by the disillusionment of boards and the announcement of new deals.

Mpumlwana says the Unburdening Panel is open to all civil servants and adds that the SACC will not single out any politicians.

He explained the process which went into of the investigations and gathering of the panel report.
