    Protestors are accusing South African President Jacob Zuma of allowing business to control the government via corruption.

    The term "state capture" is well known in South Africa.

    It is used to describe the undue influence some businesses are exerting on the government.

    It’s a key issue for the governing party, the African National Congress.

    The party is choosing a successor to President Jacob Zuma next week.
