See Why Des van Rooyen Files Second, Urgent Application to Block State Capture Report


Why would the finance-minister-for-a-minute file a second application when he’s gone on record saying the report doesn’t implicate him..?

Minister of cooperative governance and traditional affairs Des van Rooyen – who also almost became finance minister in a move that cost the economy around R500 billion – has brought another urgent interdict against former public protector Thuli Madonsela’s state capture report.

Van Rooyen withdrew his first application after finding out that there’s nothing in there that implicates him, but maybe he missed the paragraph on Saxonwold, having tea with the Guptas and the several trips he made to chill with SA’s most hated family before being offered former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene’s job.

Zuma’s also been trying his best to keep the report from seeing the light, but the DA’s having none of it, even going so far as to accuse the president of perjury.
