DA leader Mmusi Maimane says if Parliament does not launch an investigation into state capture by the end of October, the party will take the matter to court. ‘I wrote to the Speaker and said if you don’t set up the ad hoc committee by the end of October we are taking you to court,’ he is quoted as saying in a City Press report. ‘People can’t steal money in SA and walk around like nothing has happened. We can’t protest for free education while the Guptas are stealing billions and sending them to Dubai.’ Maimane was speaking at a march where supporters had gathered to protest against state capture and corruption ‘caused by the Guptas and President Jacob Zuma’.
