NATIONAL NEWS AND VIDEO - President Cyril Ramaphosa will take the stand at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture on Wednesday morning.
The president is appearing before the commission in his capacity as the president of the ANC and is expected to be accompanied by senior ANC officials.
Ramaphosa, who was the deputy president of the ANC and country during former president Jacob Zuma’s tenure when state capture allegedly occurred, is expected to face tough questions from the commission.
Among the allegations the president is likely to be quizzed about are claims by former Eskom executives Brian Molefe and Matshela Koko that mining company Glencore sold shares to Ramaphosa in order for him to assist the company in its dealings with Eskom.
Koko also told the commission Ramaphosa interfered in Eskom’s decision to dismiss him (Koko).
Ramaphosa has denied the allegations and said he would tell his side of the story when he appears before the commission.
