[LISTEN] Allow the commission to do its work uninterrupted - Zizi Kodwa

African National Congress (ANC) head of presidency Zizi Kodwa says the apparent pushback by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and Black First Land First (BLF), against Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan, is a deliberate attempt to 'shift the spotlight'.

EFF and BLF members protested outside the state capture commission on Monday where the minister was testifying.

Speaking to protesters EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu made a series of accusations against Gordhan,saying his daughter, Alicia Gordhan, has more than eight companies which are in business with government.

He says Gordhan has met with the Guptas on many occasions and is "acting like he is an angel".

Kodwa says any information related to state capture should be submitted to the Zondo commission.

We must allow the commission to do its work uninterrupted. Should anybody have any information. They should go before the commission to present that evidence.

What you see is deliberately choreographed in order to shift the spotlight because comrade Pravin is among others, those who have fought to bring us where we are today. He has unearthed the extent of state capture.

Those who might have benefited, part of their fightback strategy would be to attack him in the manner in which he has been attacked in public.
