According to Eyewitness News, the state capture commission, chaired by Deputy Chief Justice, Raymond Zondo, has heard surprising claims about key government departments and state owned entities and the Guptas influence on those.

Briefly.co.za recently reported that former Finance Minister, Nhlanhla Nene, resigned as a Member of Parliament, shortly after stepping down as Minister of Finance.

Nene stepped down as minister only two weeks after he testified at the State Capture Inquiry. He admitted in front of Judge Raymond Zondo's commission that he had been dishonest about his dealings with the Gupta family.
