Chief Justice Zondo was scathing in his final report of the State Capture Commission, pointing to industrial scale fraud, looting, corruption, and massive deficit in integrity, accountability and hence governance, leading to citizens being unable to access their basic human rights as enshrined in our Constitution.
President Ramaphosa himself, when receiving the final report, expressed the deep sense of shame, embarrassment and betrayal by the governing party, and many leaders in Government and the private sector, implicated in state capture, corruption and wrongdoing, and invited citizens with the requisite skills and expertise to come forward in helping fix the country and society broken by the state capture project.
It is in this regard that civil society partners the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Primerio International, Accountability Now and the University of Cape Town have come together to heed the President’s call with a critical intervention to help arrest the decay of society by fixing and rebuilding governance after the devastation of state capture, by proposing the strengthening of SA’s accountability architecture. We are proud to present a conference on critical aspects of the reform of the criminal justice administration in SA.
On 6 February 2023, a set of high-level panel discussions will be hosted as a critical intervention to help arrest the decay of society and rebuild governance from the devastation of state capture, by proposing the strengthening of SA’s accountability architecture through a reform of the criminal justice administration in SA.
The discussions will be attended by a small audience as well as live streamed online.
