Analysis on the commissions of inquiry into state capture and Sars administration with Sikonathi Mantshantsha and Pauli van Wyk.

The commission of inquiry into the state of capture continues to hear how the Gupta family got involved in government affairs.

Chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, the inquiry has heard shocking testimonies from former government officials about how the Gupta family was involved in appointing ministers and how they demanded money from the GCIS for their media houses.

Eusebius McKaiser spoke to Financial Mail deputy editor Sikonathi Mantshantsha and investigative journalist at Scorpio Pauli Van Wyk about what the latest insights and facts are and what have we learned from the commissions of inquiry into state capture.

READ: Zondo rejects the Guptas application to cross-examine witnesses

A commission must find facts. It cannot find anyone guilty on anything.

Pauli van Wyk, Journalist with DailyMaverick's investigative team, Scorpio

Nobody is going to be found guilty. The commission will only attempt to get to the truth. It's going to then recommend that those implicated be charged by the proper authorities.

Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Financial Mail deputy editor

In a turn of events, former president Jacob Zuma told a crowd of students that the state had not been captured and state capture does not exist.

Meanwhile, his son Duduzane Zuma has notified the inquiry that he will be testifying and would like to cross-examine former deputy minister of finance Mcebisi Jonas who has implicated him in the inquiry.

In his written press release he (Jacob Zuma) said that he feels he should work with the commission and that he will consult with his lawyers in doing so. He didn't say he will come and testify.

Pauli van Wyk, Journalist with DailyMaverick's investigative team, Scorpio

Zuma is being asked to depose of a written affidavit setting out his version, that is the first step. The second step is then to orally testify.
