'ANC-approved state capture inquiry will unlikely hone in on Gupta family'

The ANC's national executive committee (NEC) says it now wants a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture established urgently.

This comes after the ANC NEC held a three-day meeting over the weekend.

EWN's Stephen Grootes reports that the proposed commission will unlikely look into the Gupta family

Grootes explains that the scope of the commission will be determined by who sets the terms of reference and what those terms are.

The NEC also says Brian Molefe must leave Eskom and shouldn't wait for the court cases challenging his appointment.

Take a listen to the analysis:
