4 Mar Effectiveness of Commissions

As South Africans keep a close watch at the hearings at the State Capture enquiry many may be asking themselves whether those officials who have been implicated in any wrong doing will face the law. The state capture commission of inquiry is looking at allegations of corruption in most government institutions in South Africa, it is estimated that it will take two years to conclude. On the other hand the country has been subjected to the Marikana commission of inquiry, the Public Investment Corporation, the Life Esidimeni and the SARS inquiry – the question remains to what degree have the recommendations by the various chairs been implemented?

To help us unpack this discussion we are joined on the line:

• Dr Cathy Powell is an Associate Professor in Public Law at the University of Cape Town. Her areas of expertise are Constitutional and International Law.

• Stan Henkeman is the Executive Director at the Institute of Justice and Reconciliation
