NATASHA MARRIAN: So sweep SA clean already
We have new brooms in key posts, including the presidency, but precious little to show for it in the number of state capture prosecutions
The battle between those implicated in state capture and corruption and those seeking to clean up the state has been raging since President Cyril Ramaphosa took the reins of the ANC at Nasrec in 2017.
It has been a long road. Attempts have been made to revive the crippled criminal justice system with the clean-out at the National Prosecuting Authority — Shamila Batohi was appointed national director of public prosecutions to replace Shaun Abrahams, Hermione Cronje was named to head state capture investigations, and those complicit in the capture project under former president Jacob Zuma, such as Nomgcobo Jiba, left the building.
