Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has told President Cyril Ramaphosa that whatever the ANC claimed it had done in response to evidence of state capture "had not worked" - and this was responsible for an increase in corruption in South Africa.
"It seems to me, Mr President, that because of the influence that the ANC has in society and because it is the majority party… it has a very important role to play in where the country is going," Zondo told the president on Thursday.
"If one looks at the type of issues that the commission is investigating, one can see that, whatever the ANC say we did, didn't work. It didn't work. That's why corruption has reached the levels that it has reached."
