Duduzane Zuma agrees to testify at state capture inquiry


Former President Jacob Zuma’s son, Duduzane is willing to appear at the state capture inquiry. On Monday, Zuma’s attorney had sent a letter to the commission to inform it of their client’s intentions.

His attorney had placed it on record that Zuma would not appear, however, he has now reversed that decision and is now willing to appear as a witness.

Zuma and Rajesh Gupta have applied to cross-examine former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas.

Both matters relate to the alleged bribe offered to former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas.

In his testimony, Jonas told the commission that Zuma arranged a meeting where Ajay Gupta allegedly offered him R600 million to become finance minister.

“He said everything they do is legal, and that they create jobs and contribute to the economy. He said at the moment they earn about R6 billion from the fiscus, through various entities including Eskom, Transnet, and government departments. He said they wanted to increase the amount to R8 billion and they thought I could be helpful in this regard,” Jonas told the commission.
