State capture – the attempt to gain control of key institutions of government by powerful interests – has taken centre stage in national debate in recent months. Allegations of unsavoury links between elements of the South African government and powerful business interests, raise deep concerns about the securing of democracy and accountability in South Africa.
How did we get here? Can state capture be achieved and sustained without political party capture? How do liberation movements lose their sense of idealism? In our third lecture in a series on the post-apartheid state, Joel Netshitenzhe joins us to try and answer these questions and assess what can be done about it.
