Duduzane was asked about a meeting in October 2015 in which former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas alleged that he was taken to the Gupta compound by Zuma, and he confirmed that it happened.

However, he denied Jonas' version of accounts and that Jonas had no idea where the meeting would happen, reported IOL News.

"So he just jumped in my car not knowing where he was going? He knew exactly where we were going and who we were going to meet and why."

Briefly.co.za learnt that in general, Duduzane displayed an air of denial.

Zuma arrived in a smart two-piece navy-blue suit, accompanied by a team of legal representatives and family members.

It is reported that his demeanour was similar to that of his father when he appeared at the same commission - he was calm and cheerful too.
