The recipients included the Jacob Zuma Foundation, which allegedly received R150,000 and Makhensa Mabunda who got a kitchen for R5 million.

Sacks told Zondo that the Hawks asked for his preliminary report in 2017 and they’d been quiet since then.

So Zondo said that they should tell South Africa why.

“Since nothing has been done, the Hawks owe the country an explanation.”
