The State of Capture report reveals alleged improper and unethical conduct by politicians and businesses.
Madonsela recommended before her exit that a commission of inquiry into state capture be instituted, headed by a judge chosen by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
She was speaking at a South African Jewish Board of Deputies conference in Sandton on Sunday.
President Jacob Zuma recently committed himself to instituting a commission of inquiry into state capture. However, he also launched a legal challenge against the report’s recommendations, saying that they interfere with his executive powers.
Madonsela says she thought government would react quicker to the report.
“Again we thought those in charge of ensuring our state functions for all would say thank you for the evidence and immediately institute a commission of inquiry.”
She says by the time the matter is dealt with, it may be too late.
