- Head of the state capture commission of inquiry deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo granted Duduzane Zuma's applications to cross-examine a witness
- Zuma wants to cross-examine former deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas
- Zondo also denied the Guptas their chance to cross-examine witnesses
Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo gave Duduzane Zuma permission to cross-examine former deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas.
The state capture inquiry proceedings continued on 13 September, and Zondo gave his ruling on Zuma's application to cross-examine the former deputy Finance Minister.
At first, young Zuma said he couldn't testify at the inquiry but changed his tune and decided to testify after all, according to an earlier report by Briefly.co.za.
EWN reported that Zuma will present new evidence.
Zondo refused to give the Gupta brothers permission to cross-examine witnesses after they also applied, as reported by News24. The two wanted to cross-examine Jonas as well. Vytjie Mentor and Themba Maseko were also on their list of witnesses to cross-examine.
Zondo doesn't see the logic in the reasoning behind the Guptas' reason for not wanting to return to SA to testify - they fear they will be arrested by the Hawks.
According to Zondo, the Guptas do not have a legal reason not to return to SA.
