commision of inquiry

Callers weigh in on whether South Africa needs 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'.

READ: DA has welcomed the appointment of the commission of inquiry into the PIC

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

Moses says his gripe is with the never-ending commissions.

I have experience with the Ralishale commission and Nhlapo commission in Limpopo and those were just a mess.

Moses, caller

I wish someone can go and investigate that because the end results of those commissions were nothing.

Moses, caller
