It seems Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo really meant it when he said no stone would be left unturned in his State Capture Report – and the Jacob Zuma Foundation now finds itself implicated in this damning document.

A potential act of money laundering?

Charges of corruption have been recommended by Zondo, who says the Jacob Zuma Foundation was used as a vehicle to ‘personally benefit’ Dudu Myeni, as well as her nearest and dearest. The report was scathing in its initial assessment:

“The evidence of Mr. X also merits further detailed investigation and possible charges of corruption being laid against all the individuals involved in the scheme to secure millions of rands for the personal benefit of Dudu Myeni and the Jacob Zuma Foundation.”

Furthermore, a business called VNA Consulting appeared to put money into Dudu Myeni son’s business account, which was then passed on to anonymous witness Mr X, who then transferred the cash to the Jacob Zuma Foundation – a process referred to as a ‘potential money laundering operation’ by DCJ Zondo.

Zondo also went in two-footed on Mzwanele Manyi, the current spokesperson of the JGZ Foundation and former chief of the GCIS. His work with the Gupta Brothers was heavily criticised – and Manyi was even credited with paving the way for ‘one of the earliest acts of state capture’.

“The GCIS was an enabler of state capture during Mr. Manyi’s tenure. Had it not been for the fact that Manyi was moved in to replace Mr Maseko, the GCIS would likely have resisted the Guptas’ incessant pressure on government departments to divert their media spend to their business.”
