On Wednesday morning, President Cyril Ramaphosa appeared before the state capture commission in his capacity as president of the ANC. 

Joined by a slew of ANC NEC members, the president spent the morning session of the commission delivering an opening statement. 

He said: "The position of leaders who were complicit in corruption - their actions are a direct violation of the laws of the Republic, but also of the ANC constitution, its values and principles, and the values and decisions of the ANC's constitution and its structures.

"They must face the full legal consequences of its actions; they cannot rely on the ANC for support and protection, nor may they appeal to the principle of collective responsibility."

He did not refer to any specific ANC members or leaders.

On Thursday, Ramaphosa was grilled by the commission on why the ANC didn't act sooner on allegations of state capture.
