South Africa needs to break a dependency on state capture, rent-seeking and corruption if the country is to realise the vision of a just transition, according to former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas.

Jonas, who is also one of four presidential investment envoys and the chairperson of MTN board, on Tuesday delivered a keynote address during a virtual discussion on the just transition and policy dynamics. The discussion is part of a series hosted by the Presidential Climate Change Commission.

The commission has been tasked with informing the country's just transition plan to a low emissions economy.
