Unfortunately the focus on the Gupta-brand of state capture leaves another, more insidious form of capture untouched, says Jabulani Sikhakhane. 

Nothing has pre-occupied, and equally divided, South Africans in recent years more than the allegations of the capture of the state, primarily by the Gupta family and their political associates. This pre-occupation has given us the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector chaired by the second highest judge in the land, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

The proceeds of the commission have generated much heat regarding what transpired during Jacob Zuma's presidency of nine years. The commission's outcome could also have huge implications for the governing party, if not its current president Cyril Ramaphosa.
