The state capture commission has yet again requested a deadline extension to deliver its final report.

Commission chair deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo filed the request on an urgent basis at the high court in Pretoria on Thursday. He said that he needed until the end of December to file his final report – some three months after the already extended deadline of the end of September.

In his affidavit, Zondo said he had made an error in the estimation of how long the drafting of the first to third, and final, reports would take.

“When I made the assessment that my team and I should be able to complete the report by the end of September, I did so on the basis of the time I believed it would take to complete the first drafts and the time it would take for us to complete the second drafts and the third drafts,” he said in the papers.
