The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture has been faced with attacks, with some politicians saying it has been turned into a Mickey Mouse.
Now, former GCIS CEO, Mzwanele Manyi has asked evidence leader Advocate Vincent Maleka, to recuse himself. He is accusing Maleka of being biased, unfair and treating him like a criminal.
EWN reporter Clement Manyathela says Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo took some time to look at these attacks against the commission.
He said the commission will not allow witnesses to be harassed because that may intimidate people who would want to come and assist the work of the commission.
He also directly dealt with the attacks on Pravin Gordhan by the EFF last week as they were picketing outside. He says if they have any complaints about the witnesses or the commission they need to come and lay a formal complaint.— Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
Manyathela says Zondo also dealt with the accusations by the EFF that the commission is using a building owned by a media house that is anti-EFF.
But Zondo explained that they've explored all the other buildings that are owned by government and none were available.
Despite all the attacks the commission had to deal with today, Manyi continued to give his testimony, says Manyathela.
