Johannesburg – After about ten days, the state capture inquiry will resume on Monday.
This follows chairperson of the inquiry Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo and his staff going into a period of isolation after being exposed to someone with Covid-19.
“If each time somebody that has been in close contact with me tests positive, the hearings of the Commission have got to be disrupted,” said the deputy chief justice at the time.
The commission has stated that the chairperson is healthy, shows no symptoms and was able to continue with his work in isolation.
It also confirmed that should something like this happen again Zondo will conduct the hearing virtually as long as he’s in health.
Former president Jacob Zuma was expected to appear at the commission in the week that fell away.
However, an attorney representing the former president said he will not be appearing.
Zuma’s letter to the commission preceded the announcement that the inquiry wouldn’t be sitting.
The inquiry says it will soon release a statement regarding the Zuma matter will be dealt with.
