Jacob Zuma has finally agreed to make himself available to the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

This comes after the Zondo Commission gave the former president a deadline last week to confirm his attendance, with dates scheduled for July 15 to 19.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the commission had denied Zuma's request to be furnished with the questions the inquiry intends to ask ahead of his appearance.

TimesLIVE reports that the commission had said it had waited more than six weeks for the former president to agree, in writing, that he would appear before them.

Zuma has been implicated by several high-ranking officials, as well as former BOSASA COO Angelo Agrizzi, who claimed that the president had benifitted from an illicit relationship with the company.

The former president will now be given a chance to 'give his side of the story' in response to the evidence put forward by these witnesses.
