CLOSING STATEMENT BY ANC PRESIDENT CYRIL RAMAPHOSA BEFORE THE JUDICIAL COMMISSION OF INQUIRY INTO ALLEGATIONS OF STATE CAPTURE, CORRUPTION AND FRAUD IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR INCLUDING ORGANS OF STATE

Chairperson,

Thank you for the opportunity to make a brief closing statement as I conclude my testimony in my capacity as President of the African National Congress.

Before I do so, I would like to pay my respects to the memory of Mr Isaac Mogase, the first Mayor of Johannesburg in a democratic South Africa. Mr Mogase passed

away earlier this week, on Freedom Day.

It is significant to mention his passing at this time because it was in this very chamber that Mr Mogase so ably represented the people of this city, and because he was an

outstanding example of the kind of public representative that the people of our country seek and deserve.

We extend to his family our deepest condolences
