JOHANNESBURG: – President Cyril Ramaphosa must present himself before the commission probing “state capture” in which senior government officials and executives at state companies have been implicated, Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane said on Wednesday.
Maimane said recent developments in the Zondo Commission of Inquiry had shown that the capture of the ruling African National Congress and of national government and its entities for corrupt ends extended beyond former president Jacob Zuma and the Gupta family accused of trying to exert undue influence on the state.

His call came a day after Ramaphosa appointed former central bank governor Tito Mboweni as finance minister to replace Nhlanhla Nene who resigned over his meetings with the Guptas. In his own testimony before the Zondo commission, Nene denied helping to further the Guptas interests but conceded he should have been more upfront about his encounters with them.
