South African president Cyril Ramaphosa has submitted his response to recommendations from a state inquiry into alleged corruption during his predecessor’s presidency.

A judicial commission of inquiry was established to examine allegations of high-level graft during former president Jacob Zuma’s nine years in power from 2009 to 2018.

The inquiry found that Zuma had allowed businessmen close to him – brothers Atul, Ajay and Rajesh Gupta – to plunder state resources and influence policy, commonly known as ‘state capture’ in South Africa.

The Guptas deny any wrongdoing and have left the country, but they face extradition proceedings in Dubai.
