Four days have been set aside for President Cyril Ramaphosa’s testimony at the state capture inquiry.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has confirmed that he would appear before the state capture commission of inquiry next month.
Commission chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, said on Wednesday that four days had been set aside for Ramaphosa’s testimony.
On 22 and 23 April, he will testify on behalf of the ANC, and on 28 and 29 April, “he will be testifying in his capacity as president of the country,” Zondo said.
He said: 
I understand President Ramaphosa will testify representing the ANC, but I have indicated that from the commission’s side, the president will have to testify as president of the country and former deputy president.
Ramaphosa’s acting spokesperson, Tyrone Seale, has confirmed in a statement that Ramaphosa would testify “in line with the President’s many public statements in which he has expressed his willingness to testify before the Commission”.

In a statement he said Ramaphosa “will give evidence in his capacity as President and former Deputy President of the Republic and as President and former Deputy President of the African National Congress”.
Ramaphosa was the deputy president during Jacob Zuma’s presidency when most of the alleged large-scale government corruption, which the Zondo commission was set up to investigate, took place.
