JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks say they have set up a number of teams to investigate cases linked to the State of Capture report, opened by different political parties and individuals.

The authority says none of the cases brought to them are being ignored, adding they’re seeking legal advice on how to investigate the report.

Last week, President Jacob Zuma said that he would challenge the remedial action contained in the report.

Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says, “We heard there were investigations that we were busy with, but we haven’t even started. There were cases that were already opened and we’re working on them.”

At the same time, the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) Mmusi Maimane is expected to meet with the Hawks to discuss the charges the party has laid against Zuma.
