Zondo Comission of inquiry
Journalists Karyn Maughan and Erin Bates provide insights into the state capture inquiry.

The judicial commission of inquiry into allegations of state capture, corruption and fraud in the public sector including Organs of State is well underway with explosive evidence being given by different witnesses.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo called a raft of witnesses including former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas, former GCIS CEO Themba Maseko and veteran ANC MP Vytjie Mentor.

The State Capture Inquiry also saw former Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene resigning after giving his testimony.

The question is, what have we learnt from this inquiry?

To discuss this, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh speaks to eNCA reporter Erin Bates and legal journalist at Tiso Blackstar Karyn Maughan.

Some of the pivotal questions are around the ANC having these meetings with the banks and why they felt that it was necessarily an appropriate thing to do.

She adds that she hopes that as this process unfolds, the commission hears from those who haven't been in the public eye but have direct knowledge of what happened.

Bates says what we have seen from evidence leader Advocate Vincent Maleka Vincent Maleka is an attitude claiming what they have heard so far has been many denials.

At the end of the day, it is still low hanging fruit to say well you know the Gupta's are implicated in Thuli Madonsela's report and they are implicated in the testimonies of these various witnesses and yet they haven't had their say.
