The Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture on Wednesday morning was granted an extension of six weeks.
This will be the commission’s eighth extension since its establishment in 2018.
Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, the chairperson of the commission, approached the Pretoria High Court last week seeking yet another extension of the inquiry so that it could finalise its work.
There was no opposition to the extension.
In an affidavit, Zondo said the commission had made progress in compiling its fourth report, but they had not been able to complete all the remaining topics and would consequently not meet the 30 April 2022 deadline to submit the report to the Presidency.
The remaining topics to be covered by the commission reportedly include the SABC, Prasa, the Waterkloof incident, SSA and the Estina dairy farm.
This is a developing story. More to follow.
