ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa says the issue of state capture has been a matter of great political contestation for several years within the governing party.
Ramaphosa has begun testifying before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
His much anticipated two-part appearance is due to focus on - among others - his
tenure as party Deputy President, as well as his role as the Chairperson of the ANC Cadre Deployment Committee.
Ramaphosa says the party has taken a number of resolutions to prevent corruption: "The ANC has, over the course of several years, recognised the existence of corruption within the state, its own ranks and other parts of society.
It has taken a number of resolutions on measures to prevent corruption, including on issues relating to state capture.
We must acknowledge that the issue of state capture has been a matter of great political contestation within the ANC - differences over whether state capture existed, its extent and form and what should be done about it."
