“I want to know what they did about what you told them, not from you, of course, because you told me already that they never came back to you,” remarked Zondo. “When they come here I want to know what they did. We are all aware about what is in the public domain about Prasa and other SOEs, and it would appear these things do not start just now.
“And it is only proper that this commission should ask the question to some of these people: where were you and what did you do about this?
“You told the top six and you alerted them and are there no steps that they ought to have taken to make sure that Prasa is not where it is today in terms of its financial position.”
Zondo said the ANC top six, particularly, had enormous power to summon ANC deployees in government, including all ministers and tell them to do right or show them the door if they refused.
Zondo said it was not only the ANC officials who needed to account but also parliament, for having failed in its oversight duties in some of the corruption that took place during the state capture years.
