Former finance minister Malusi Gigaba will be appearing before the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture once again on Monday, after appearing ten days ago. 

Gigaba’s previous chaotic testimony saw him dealing with a number of issues, among which was his estranged wife Nomachule Gigaba’s “extensive lies” during her previous appearances before Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

What did emerge was Gigaba’s evidence relating to dodgy dealings with Gupta brothers Ajay, Atul and Rajesh during his stint as minister of public enterprises, from 2010 to 2014. 

During his testimony, the former minister admitted to knowing the fugitive brothers, having met them for the first time in the early 2000s while he was president of ANC Youth League.
