The state capture commission of inquiry - led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo - is underway.

A picture is starting to form of endemic corruption and abuse of state power.

On Wednesday former government spokesperson Themba Maseko said that many public servants with information relevant the inquiry is too afraid to appear.

He testified that the Guptas – with the help of former President Jacob Zuma – tried to force him to redirect R600 million of Government advertising to the New Age newspaper.
