The Chamber of Mines welcomes the appointment of Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to head the inquiry into state capture.

Judge Zondo was appointed on the basis recommended 15 months ago by then Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela.

‘While we lament the inordinate delay in the announcement by President Zuma of this appointment, we optimistically take the development as a signal of the beginnings of critical shifts in the quality of governance of South Africa,’ the chamber said in a statement.

The appointment of such a senior judicial officer to the position following his selection by the Chief Justice, is particularly welcome given the importance of the task ahead both for South Africa and the mining industry.

In her October 2016 report, Madonsela identified numerous mining-related issues. In addition, poor governance has had a negative impact on investment, growth, jobs and the country’s economy.
