- Report: President Jacob Zuma should appoint a commission of inquiry within 30 days
- Police use stun grenades as they seek to disperse anti-Zuma protesters in Pretoria
The 355-page "State of Capture" report contains allegations, and in some instances evidence, of cronyism, questionable business deals and ministerial appointments, and other possible large-scale corruption at the very top of government. The Public Protector, appointed to investigate complaints of government misconduct, compiled the report.
The report came out on the order of a court in Pretoria hours after Zuma abandoned a legal bid to delay its release.
The President, his son Duduzane Zuma, government ministers, the board of South Africa's state power utility, Eskom, and the Gupta family -- brothers Ajay, Atul and Rajesh Gupta -- are all implicated in what the report said could be breaches of ethics codes and in some cases criminal allegations.
