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.
