Voiced by Amazon Polly

The much-anticipated release and handover of the final report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into allegations of state capture, corruption, and fraud in the public sector, including organs of state, has been again delayed.

The overdue final volumes of the report were to have been sent electronically to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday and handed over officially today.

However, on Monday afternoon Professor Itumeleng Mosala, the Secretary of the Commission said the report had again been delayed.

“The Commission would like to inform the public that due to challenges in processing Part V and VI of the Report on time for the handover to the President by 18h00 today, 20th June 2022, it has been agreed to move the event to Wednesday, 22 June 2022 the original handover date in Cape Town,” said the Secretary of the Commission.

“The Presidency will announce the exact time for Wednesday handover.

“The final volumes of Part V and VI of the report are about 1 824 pages long.

“The volumes themselves are seven in total.”

Professor Itumeleng Mosala said in the interest of quality and reduction of unavoidable errors and as a result of calendar logistical problems, it has become necessary to allow for a responsible and proper completion of the conclusion of the report.

“The Commission apologises to the public and all concerned for this further delay. The patience and support of the public is highly appreciated.”
