Public opinion research has, to date, provided the most detailed evidence on public perceptions of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector, Including Organs of State (hereafter referred to as "the Zondo Commission") and the public's expectations of the implementation of its outcomes and recommendations. The results show that a procedural justice model applies to Zondo Commission evaluations. Trust (effectiveness, fairness) and legitimacy vested in the Commission matter for overall confidence in the Commission.
