Normally, if you are going to cross-examine a witness at the commission you first have to testify but Van Rooyen's legal team argued that they got a letter from the commission that he would be allowed to cross-examine Fuzile before he testifies and Zondo allowed that to happen.Nthakoana Ngatane, Reporter - EWN
