PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE? President Jacob Zuma needs the support of the ANC leader but will he get
Zuma said in a statement: "The matter can not wait any longer".
I urge everyone to cooperate with the commission of inquiry.
Zuma, who previously slammed the Public Protector's report on state capture calling it was a political tool meant to be used to deal with "certain individuals", said he made the decision after the investigation and remedial action of the Public Protector and the order by the North Gauteng High Court in December past year.
"To ensure that no stone is left unturned in so far as the allegations of state capture are concerned, and in order to avoid any further allegations of state capture being lodged with the Office of the Public Protector, the public protector calls upon the president to ensure that the terms of reference are not limited to the issues investigated or identified in the State of Capture report". Zuma and the Guptas have denied all accusations of wrongdoing.
He said the announcement of the commission of inquiry "does not let Jacob Zuma off the hook" and that the DA would closely watch developments around the commission over the next 180 days.
"There is nothing under the sun stopping president Zuma or any president from initiating twenty judicial inquiries into state capture by white monopoly capital".
Kenyatta is also expected to meet Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who succeeded Zuma last month as party leader of the ruling African National Congress.
Zuma has said he will still appeal the high court's ruling regarding its "legality", but was nevertheless setting up the inquiry.
After the Constitutional Court found against him, he eventually reimbursed the equivalent of around $500,000 for non-security-related work at his homestead, a sum set by the treasury.
The NEC decides matters by consensus and, in spite of Mr Ramaphosa's victory and the weakening of Mr Zuma's power, is divided between the president's supporters and backers of the new leader.
Zuma had initially gone to the court to challenge a report by the former public protector, which alleged that he had allowed a wealthy Indian business family known as the Guptas to "capture the state".
Zuma was acquitted of rape but is often mocked in newspaper cartoons depicting him with a shower nozzle sprouting from his bald head.
