South Africa is waiting to see how former president Jacob Zuma performs under scrutiny on Day 3 of his testimony before the state capture commission.
Kieno Kammies gets a recap of his first two days from Pieter du Toit, assistant news editor at News24 and co-author of the book Enemy of the People.
Du Toit says although Zuma dominated on Monday with a lengthy political statement, Tuesday saw him lose the initiative.
