The SA Council of Churches (SACC) says the findings of the Unburdening Panel show how the problems facing South Africa are deeper than "petty corruption.
The SACC released the findings of what it calls the Unburdening Panel which invited politicians and civil to come forward and reveal information about corruption and state capture.
SACC's general secretary Bishop Malusi Mpumlwana says that the council has been engaging the ANC on its concerns on an ongoing basis.
Mpumlwana says that government has lost its moral legitimacy and argues that many state institutions have been cannibalised.
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.
"Interestingly, these things have been in the public domain (incl. state capture report), but no one has dotted things together." #SACC— 702 (@Radio702) May 21, 2017
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.
