Statement of the Thabo Mbeki Foundation on the Judgment of the North Gauteng High Court setting aside the Report of the Arms Procurement Commission.

August 21, 2019

The Thabo Mbeki Foundation (TMF) has noted today’s judgment of the North Gauteng High Court which set aside the findings of the Report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into allegations of fraud, corruption, impropriety or irregularity in the Strategic Defence Procurement Package (SDPP) chaired by Judge Willie Seriti.

The TMF further notes that the review application was not opposed and that the judgment expressed itself to the Commission’s handling of evidence presented before it, not the merits of the allegations of corruption made over the years.

In this regard, the Foundation stands by the evidence submitted by our Patron, President Thabo Mbeki, to the Commission, whose essence is that the decisions of the Cabinet Inter-Ministerial Committee which processed the SDPP were free from corruption.

We also recall President Mbeki’s article published on the TMF website, dated April 25, 2016, which addresses matters related to the SDPP and the Arms Procurement Commission.
