Eyewitness News reporter Gia Nicolaides gives a summary of today proceedings at the Zondo commission.

Absa has testified at the state capture commission in Parktown.

The bank was the first to cut ties with the Guptas.

It was also invited to meetings with the inter-ministerial committee but the bank declined to attend, saying it would not discuss client information.

First National Bank (FNB) testified first on Tuesday and stated how they questioned the basis of the meeting.

Johan Burger from FNB explained that there were a number of reasons why they decided to close the Gupta account.

They were then summoned by the ANC and the inter-ministerial committee to come and explain themselves. FNB never attended that meeting and shortly afterwards they got an invitation to attend a meeting with the inter-ministerial committee. Ultimately they declined that invitation.
