Casac: SA can be proud of Nombembe and state capture inquiry team

The team behind Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo's commission of inquiry into state capture is capable, and deserving of respect and support.

This is according to lobby group Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac).

On Thursday, EFF leader Julius Malema accused the commission's head of investigations, Terence Nombembe, of being compromised.

Last year, it emerged that the SA Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), where Nombembe is the chief executive, received more than a million rand donation from the Gupta-linked Trillian Capital for its student fund.

SAICA says the donation from Trillian Capital was unsolicited and paid to a bursary fund.

The money was paid back to Trillian, after becoming aware of the controversy surrounding the Gupta-linked company.

Casac head Lawson Naidoo says he is surprised that the EFF would attempt to discredit the commission of inquiry.

It's really surprising that they [EFF] seek to cloud this commission of inquiry in controversy from the start.

Lawson Naidoo, Director of CASAC

I think it's a very good team that all South Africans can be proud of.

Lawson Naidoo, Director of CASAC

They need all the support that they can get from the South African public, political parties, civil society and so on.

Lawson Naidoo, Director of CASAC

I don't think that there can be any finger pointed at Nombembe. We should be proud to have someone of that calibre leading the team of investigators.

Lawson Naidoo, Director of CASAC
