Former finance minister Malusi Gigaba’s estranged wife, Nomachule Gigaba, is expected to testify before the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture on Thursday.

UPDATE: Malusi had phones wiped to avoid being ‘Brian Molefed’, claims Norma Mngoma

She will continue with her evidence relating to the Gupta family and her husband’s dealings with the fugitive brothers.

During her previous appearance, Nomachule, known as Norma Mngoma, said the controversial Gupta brothers had inside information about appointments to Cabinet and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) long before they were made public.

The commission will also hear Transnet-related evidence from its former chief financial officer (CFO) Gary Pita at 5pm.

Anonymous SSA witnesses

Two anonymous witnesses returned to kick off Thursday’s hearings of the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture.

The commission will hear State Security Agency (SSA) related evidence.

This comes after former state security minister David Mahlobo testified at the commission on Wednesday evening and denied claims he received money from the SSA during his tenure from 2014 to 2017.

Last week Friday, an anonymous witness, referred to only as “Dorothy”, told the commission that she withdrew R4.5 million in cash to hand over to Mahlobo on three different occasions.
