Themba Maseko started 2022 on a high, with a new job and the release of the State Capture Inquiry’s first report, which described him as "one of the foremost resistors of state capture".

"He stood up to the efforts of the Guptas, backed by the then-president [Jacob] Zuma, to extract unjustified amounts from the public purse," the report found, going on to say that former president Jacob Zuma's decision to remove Maseko as head of the Government Communications and Information System (GCIS) was one of the earliest acts of state capture by the Guptas.
