South Africa's Home Affairs minister, Malusi Gigaba, attempted to prove his innocence in allegations of links with the Gupta family.
He turned to social media, hosting a Q&A on the social platform to answer questions by the public directly.

During the Q&A, Gigaba made it clear that he is willing to testify before the state capture inquiry commission to prove his innocence
I am willing to appear before Judge Zondo anytime he decides it is necessary that I do so. That said, I doubt he will ever decide that it is.
Here are some highlights from the session:
