State Capture Inquiry

Zondo Commission: Treasury official called to stand to explain Treasury systems

The day two of the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into state capture resumed on Tuesday with the first witness Willie Mathebula being called to take the stand.

Mathebula is the acting chief procurement officer at the National Treasury who has been at Treasury for the last 15 years.

EWN reporter Thando Kubheka says Mathebula is explaining the systems and processes at National Treasury, making sure that the commission is clear on how the government's procurement systems work and to help the legal team with their investigations into state capture.

Most of his testimony is very technical but the commission had said this is to assist to find out if there were any irregularities in the awarding of tenders and contracts.

The evidence leader said that Matebula's testimony will not implicate anyone in state capture but his testimony is purely to assist the inquiry.

It is not clear whether other witnesses will be called to the stand today and how long Mathebula will be on the stand.

Kubheka says they believe they will be briefed later today on who will be next on the stand.
