Zuma to appear before state capture inquiry

Filed under: International News |

The South Africa state capture inquiry has announced that former president Jacob Zuma will appear before the commission to testify on his side of the story of the allegations of state capture.

However, the commission said Zuma had no right to insist on being furnished with a list of questions as a condition for him to voluntarily take the stand.

In a statement, the commission said it has been waiting more than six weeks for Zuma to submit a written undertaking that he would appear before it.

Zuma has been at a center of corruption allegations after his government was reportedly captured by an Indian family called the Guptas.

According to the testimony delivered at the inquiry which was set up by current president Cyril Ramaphosa, the Guptas had power to appoint ministers and directors in the ministries.

Many former ministers and senior government officials have been implicated as being part of the network which allegedly captured the state with Zuma at the helm.
