South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed a tribunal to fast-track legal proceedings from graft investigations by the country’s Special Investigating Unit (SIU), the presidency said on Sunday.
The tribunal will adjudicate over any civil proceedings brought before it by the SIU, which investigates malpractice in state institutions, state assets and public money, the presidency said in a statement.
Ramaphosa has vowed to root out corruption, which is perceived as a weakness for the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and his presidency ahead of elections this year.
