State-capture research

The Eskom Inquiry may have been postponed, but the momentum that is gathering against the forces of state capture cannot now be stopped, say academics at the UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB).
In the “State of Capture” report released by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela in 2016, Eskom is mentioned 913 times. Until that point, South Africans had little idea about how deeply state-owned enterprises were implicated in the large-scale corruption project referred to as state capture.
Madonsela’s report has been followed by even more revelations from investigative journalists, the South African Council of Churches, and academics within the State Capacity Research Project.
