Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo says the dates of when Norma Mngoma should appear at the state capture inquiry will be released.
On Monday, Zondo gave the inquiry’s secretary permission to issue a summons for Mngoma to appear before it.
This is after she withdrew from testifying.
Mngoma was due to give evidence about her estranged husband Malusi Gigaba’s interactions with the Gupta family.
Her legal representative, Adv. Gcwalisile Makhathini, explained the reasons for her withdrawal.
“One, her personal concerns with how various aspects regarding her proposed appearance at the commission has been handled or allegedly mishandled by the commission.
“And two, her decision to therefore withdraw her participation in the work of the commission.”
Mngoma implicates Gigaba in Guptas saga
During an interview with eNCA in 2020, Mngoma claimed that the Guptas gave Gigaba “a lot of money”.
“But I don’t know what they were giving money for, but sometimes he used to say that, ‘no, I do favours for them, the Guptas.” But it was a lot of cash all the time,” she said.
Mngoma said the money was used to fund Gigaba’s lavish lifestyle.
DCJ says a summons will later be issued to Ms. Gigaba. #StateCaptureInquiry
