Hogan and Gordhan's testimonies postponed due to late submissions

Former public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan and the current minister of public enterprise, Pravin Gordhan's testimony at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into state capture have been postponed.

EWN reporter Clement Manyathela says Hogan submitted her testimony to the commission late while Gordhan only submitted a draft, which doesn't give the people implicated in those statements enough time to decide whether they would like to respond or not.

Manyathela says that former president Jacob Zuma's legal team said that they were not given enough time to respond to Hogan's statement as she implicates Zuma in her testimony.

That promoted Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to say that we have to give all implicated parties sufficient time.

He also called on to the Commission's Legal Council to treat everybody the same and make sure they send statements on time and speak to the witnesses before they come so that there is sufficient time for those implicated to decide if they want to give their version of events or they simply want to read the statements and respond.
