Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan says those who are found guilty of corruption must face the law.
A full bench in Pretoria rejected all of President Jacob Zuma’s grounds for reviewing the State of Capture remedial action by former public protector Thuli Madonsela.
Gordhan says the North Gauteng High Court's ruling is again an indication that state capture and corruption is a reality in South Africa.
The ANC NEC member also assured South Africans that this difficult time in the country will pass. He called for people to be optimistic.
Building a democracy takes time, these are one of the difficult times we are going through, the courts have demonstrated that there are institutions that work. We should never lose hope.— Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan
