Civil society bodies push for corporations implicated in state capture to be more thoroughly grilled by Zondo.
Are private corporations being treated with kid gloves by the commission of inquiry into state capture?
Sections of civil society say the impression is being created that the commission, chaired by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo, is soft on private actors who were complicit in state capture.
In a letter from nonprofit body Open Secrets, signed off by 18 organisations and whistle-blowers, civil society calls on Zondo to summons private actors and grill them on the extent of their knowledge of what unfolded during the state capture era.
