DAVOS-KLOSTERS – President Cyril Ramaphosa has stressed the return of the rule of law and said that those complicit in acts of corruption would be brought to book.
Ramaphosa was speaking at a press conference at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, on Wednesday and said "we are seeking to reconfirm that South Africa is a place where rule of law should be the order of the day".
Flanked by key members of his cabinet, Ramaphosa made it clear that integral state institutions were being restored in a bid to boost investor confidence and attract international investment.
"A critical undertaking that we have embarked on is the restoration of the rule of law and the integrity and credibility of our public institutions."
He pointed to the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture and said it had begun its work in earnest "to uncover evidence of the capture of several state institutions and processes by private interests".
