I must confess I was one of those critics who felt the commission of inquiry into state capture was not only taking too long but was also unnecessarily costing the taxpayer an exorbitant amount of money. But I have come to realise it was worth every penny that was spent on it.

The thoroughness of the first part of the report deserves to be applauded and raises the expectation that once we have the report in its entirety, there will be no doubt that those involved in unearthing the depths of state capture did the job with immeasurable dedication, skill and integrity, leaving no stone unturned.

I have great respect for him.
