Ramaphosa has conceded that some state institutions have been damaged.
“The process of state capture - with all its attendant political, legal and economic consequences - has eroded the capability of several institutions and undermined public confidence and trust.”
But he says government has begun the task of restoring the integrity and capability of several state institutions, saying the organisations must fulfill their mandate without any interference.
