Duduzane Zuma rocks up at state capture inquiry

South Africa

The son of former president Jacob Zuma arrived at the Zondo commission of inquiry on Wednesday morning.

He arrived unexpectedly at the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture in Johannesburg on Wednesday accompanied by his legal team.

Duduzane Zuma is expected to “seek clarity” from the commission on the postponement of former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas’s cross-examination.

His lawyers were successful with their application for the right to cross-examine Jonas about his testimony that a Gupta brother had tried to bribe and threaten him into taking over the post of finance minister from Nhlanhla Nene.

Duduzane Zuma has maintained that it is a lie and has stated that it was in fact himself and arms deal advisor Fana Hlongwane who met with Jonas over rumours that Hlongwane was trying to blackmail him

Duduzane has agreed to testify to the state capture inquiry about these claims, as has Hlongwane.

The commission is also expected to continue hearing the evidence of former public enterprise minister Barbara Hogan.
