Do we need yet another Commission of Inquiry?
President Cyril Ramaphosa has set up a commission of inquiry into the Public Investment Corporation (PIC).
It will be headed by Justice Lex Mpati‚ the former president of the Supreme Court of Appeal‚ assisted by Gill Marcus and Emmanuel Lediga.
Callers on The Eusebius Mckaiser Show with Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh standing in, weigh in on whether another commission of inquiry is needed?
Caller Mark says as a South African citizen he is very despondent - 'whether you are a white or black you should be despondent'.
We have two idiots that are killing kids because they stole a sunflower, totally ridiculous. On the other hand, we have an ANC that has been in power for the past 20 years or so, that can't even get pit toilets sorted for their own people.Mark, caller
And we have commission after commission and these guys have looted us almost to devastation.Mark, caller
