[WATCH] 'Age old cynicism around the Commissioner of Inquiry'

On the #AfternoonDrieve, Gugu chats about the latest on registration for the 2018 academic year, and the latest on the press briefing that was given by Home Affairs Director-General Mkuseli Apleni.

She also touched base on a topic of conversation around the Commissioner of Enquiry into the State of Capture Report, which was concluded by the Public Protector almost a year ago.

Gugu says that it’s been a process trying to get clarity on the serious allegations about the President’s son, the Gupta family and whether the President acted improperly.

Some people saying it’s long overdue, but the age, old cynicism about commissions coming up as well.

She adds that there has been cynicism around the outcome of this Commission, but people shouldn’t forget that the commissions hand over their work.

Gugu says that while we hold commissions accountable for the work they do or don’t do. It’s important to hold departments liable as well.

It’s very important to hold accountable the various government departments, agencies, law enforcement, who get tasked with implementing the findings, the work, the recommendations of the Commission.
