Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman gives details of the proceedings.

Former prosecutions boss Mxolisi Nxasana wrapped up his testimony at the state capture inquiry on Monday.

He told the commission that former president Jacob Zuma initiated a commission of inquiry to investigate his fitness to hold office.

But the terms of reference differed from the complaints Zuma made against him in his submissions.

Eyewitness News senior reporter Barry Bateman has the details.

He says the president was engaging in a fishing expedition to try and find anything on him to be able to get rid of him.
