State Capture Inquiry to begin on 20 August

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo says the State Capture Commission of Inquiry will officially begin on the 20th of August.

Former President Jacob Zuma established the commission in March following a High Court ruling which ordered him to comply with the Public Protector’s remedial action.

Eyewitness News reporter Qaanitah Hunter says there is no word on who will be called to testify at the inquiry.

We have really pushed Dr Zondo to say who are these witnesses, why are you not telling us less than three weeks before the commission hearings start. He says he is not ready at this stage to release the names of those people who will be coming forward.

He says however we will get the list of names shortly before the hearings begin.

Hunter says Zondo will not allow for cross examination unless under special circumstances.

Zondo was very firm on this matter, saying he will not allow it unless you prove that there is something in your testimony that needs to be clarified.
