Zim Invented State Capture, SA Refined It- Biti

MDC deputy national chairperson Tendai Biti told a Durban audience on Tuesday night that his country had invented state capture and South Africans were just refining it.
 
I come from a country called Zimbabwe, in respect of which for 39 years, power has been monopolised by a political party called Zanu-PF, on which decision making has been based on the desire and agenda for power retention and the desire and agenda for personal aggrandisement. That which you call state capture, we invented it in Zimbabwe, you just refined it.
Biti said thisduring the launch of his book Democracy Works – Rewiring Politics to Africa’s Advantage at the Hilton Hotel. The launch was hosted by the Xubera Institute for Research and Development, Brenthurst Foundation and Pan MacMillan South Africa. Biti, Brenthurst Foundation director Greg Mills, former president and CEO of the Washington DC-based Newseum Jeffrey Herbst, and former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo authored the book.
