Proceedings at the judicial commission of inquiry into state capture continue, despite former president Jacob Zuma’s legal team informing the commission he will not be showing up this week as instructed.

Pretorius: “The question that would have been put to Mr Zuma, is: ‘What was your involvement, your knowledge, your action, your lack of action in relation to this?'”
Pretorius: “Was this just a coincidence? A sequence of coincidental actions, which began with attempts to influence appointments at the most senior government level, through to board executives, well, boards and executives of state-owned entities, through to corruption, through to the benefits that came back to those that sought to influence this course of events in the first place.”
Pretorius says the questions would’ve been posed around whether or not those actions were organised, or if the outcome was intended when these appointments and dismissals were made.
