During the interview Gigaba appeared to contract a serious case of Cyrillitis, the term refers to the sudden and urgent jumping to a clean political ship and trying to win favour with ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Gigaba (like Zuma was) is a charming politician and during the interview, he expressed his excitement for the state capture inquiry to start. Gigaba even said corruption was real and not a perception.

Gigaba also proved during the interview that he will go to virtually any extreme to save his own political future. The once fierce Zuma loyalist actually called on his boss to do the right thing and resign.

During the interview, Gigaba calmly and masterfully deflects questions about his own involvement in state capture.
