#StateCaptureInquiry: 'Some members of the investigative team must be witnesses'

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it plans to call state capture inquiry lead investigator Terence Nombembe as a witness as soon as the party is accredited to do so.

The party was responding to Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo's update on the progress of the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

The commission is expected to begin its public hearings in August and has already approached key witnesses to come forward.

The EFF's General Secretary Godrich Gardee says the party has consistently raised their reservations about Dr Terrance Nombembe.

Mbembe is the CEO of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) which received a donation of R1 million from Gupta-linked company Trillian. Saica paid back the donation to Trillian‚ which was made in March 2017 as a contribution to its bursary fund for disadvantaged students.

Some of the members of the investigative team will have to be called in as witnesses, we have raised our reservations on Mr Terrence Nombembe who is a recipient of a donation from the Gupta's and it is impossible that he will be impartial in the investigation in that he knowingly received in excess of a million rand donation....

Godrich Gardee, General Secretary of the EFF

We have exchanged quite a lot of correspondence with the chairperson of the commission but we lost the argument and we have resigned our faith to the commission

Godrich Gardee, General Secretary of the EFF

He says they will be keeping a close eye on the inquiry and plans to call Mbembe as a witness.

We will be keeping an eagles eye on the processes and we will make our own submission as and when we are ready to do so and accredited to do so. We will resurrect this matter and may as well call Mr Terrance Mbembe into the witness box.
