Businessman Fana Hlongwane told the state capture commission that the infamous meeting at the Gupta house where former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas was allegedly offered R600 million was to sort out issues and rumours of blackmail.
Hlongwane appeared at the commission on Wednesday and said the meeting did not involve any of the Gupta brothers.
