Sunday Times political journalist Qaanitah Hunter looks at the inquiries that are happening this week.

There are three inquiries happening this week, the Zondo Commission into State Capture, The NPA Inquiry and the PIC Inquiry.

READ: Zondo commission's secretary implicated in Bosasa scandal - report

More explosive testimony is expected at the Zondo Commission into State Capture when former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi takes the stand again today.

Political journalist at Sunday Times, Qaanitah Hunter says the focus at the commission will be the continuation of Agrizzi's testimony and the people that he is likely to implicate.

There has been a lot of reporting over the weekend on what he is likely to say and the biggest this is, of course, him implicating former president Jacob Zuma and how Bosasa captured the NPA and the criminal justice system.

Qaanitah Hunter,Political Journalist at Sunday Times

The African National Congress (ANC) has continuously said that it is not on trial, however, many of its leaders have been implicated.

In other political news, the NPA Inquiry also begins today and it will look at the fitness to hold the office of Advocate Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi.

Hunter states that this inquiry is important because at the centre is Jiba's involvement with former president Zuma.

She has been accused on numerous occasions of acting unethically as a prosecutor.

Public Investment Corporation (PIC) Inquiry also begins today to address allegations of impropriety.
