The Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture says its final report will be handed over to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday after missing a court deadline earlier this week.
The news comes after Presidency spokesperson Vincent Magwenya confirmed on Friday morning that Ramaphosa had not yet received the final report.
The commission had previously been granted an extension until 30 April.
“The commission wishes to announce to the members of the media and the public that it was not able to submit the final volumes of its report to the president on 15 June due to certain challenges, the commission said in a statement on Saturday.
“The electronic report will, however, now be certainly submitted to the president during the evening [on Sunday], 19 June . The handover ceremony will take place on Monday, 20 June, at the Union Buildings in Pretoria at 6pm.”
The Democratic Alliance (DA) had raised concern regarding the delaying of the report and had written to the Zondo commission over the matter.
The Joint Ethics Committee has been tasked to investigate possible contraventions of the parliamentary code of conduct during the state capture era.
This applies to current members, who were serving in Parliament when any alleged transgressions took place, according to Parliament spokesperson Moloto Mothapo.
Ramaphosa has already submitted the third and fourth volume of the state capture reports to Parliament.
Part three of the commission’s report dealt with the conduct of current and former MPs implicated in allegations of state capture as well as Bosasa, among others, while the fourth volume included findings on Eskom, National Treasury, the Free State asbestos project, and the R1 billion housing project.
Over R1 billion spent
The commission has already submitted four volumes of the state capture report to the Presidency.
The inquiry was announced in early 2018, and tasked with investigating allegations of state capture along with public sector corruption and fraud.
It then began its work in August of that year and was initially given 180 days to wrap up.
The commission has spent more than R1 billion.
