The former president was responding to the testimony of former public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan which implicated him.

Former President Jacob Zuma has defended the African National Congress's (ANC's) deployment committee, saying it was always intended to help government and not impose appointments in state institutions.

Zuma was responding to the testimony of Former Public Enterprises Minister Barbara Hogan, which implicated him.

Hogan told the inquiry last year that she faced some pressure from the committee and Zuma, who insisted that she should appoint Siyabonga Gama as Transnet CEO even though he was facing disciplinary processes.

Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela explains that Zuma says the committee is supposed to help in the appointment of people to key institutions.

Zuma says what Hogan has expressed is more of her own view.

She said Zuma said the only candidate and the only person I will accept is Siyabonga Gama.

He says this does not involve him alone, the issue of appointing people in government or state-owned institutions is not a decision the president takes. He says that is why the ANC has this deployment committee which is often led by the deputy president of the country so that there is that balance of looking at the needs of government.
