Johannesburg - The main opposition Democratic Alliance has asked the commission looking into "state capture" to confirm that senior officials from the ANC including President Cyril Ramaphosa and former President Jacob Zuma will be called to testify, its leader Mmusi Maimane said on Thursday.
"The DA’s complaints against all 12 of these ANC members are a matter of public record and need to be thoroughly investigated," Maimane said.
"Considering information in the public domain and testimony already heard before the Commission, their testimony is material in allowing the Commission to fulfil its mandate."
In addition to Ramaphosa and Zuma, the DA also wants to hear testimony from Gwede Mantashe, who is the mineral resources minister, as well as Jessie Duarte, Mosebenzi Zwane, Malusi Gigaba, Des van Rooyen, Lynne Brown, Tom Moyane, Arthur Fraser, David Mahlobo and David Mabuza.
Maimane said testimonies heard by the commission so far made it clear that the ANC "knew full well that state capture was underway and did absolutely nothing to stop it from happening".
