Zondo Comission of inquiry
News24 Politics Editor Mahlatse Mahlase gives a summary of the three days of the Zondo commission into State Capture.

The Zondo commission into State of Capture has heard three testimonies from witnesses which all point to Cabinet positions being made available by the notorious Gupta family.

Deputy Chief Justice Ray Zondo has been appointed as the head of the commission.

Speaking to John Maytham, News24 politics editor Mahlatse Mahlase says what is beginning to emerge is that is a pattern of how the Guptas worked.

Themba Maseko says the first call he got was from Ajay Gupta who had requested to meet him. He says he did agree to the meeting and he had already heard the rumours doing the round in the government corridors.

He uses the word 'coincidentally', as he was driving out of GCIS to the Gupta mansion he got the call from president Zuma who spoke to him in isiZulu and said there are these Gupta brothers please can you meet them and please can you help them.
