The Commission of Inquiry into allegations of State Capture resumes its hearings on Thursday morning.
Taking the stand today is former African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament Dr Makhosi Khoza who will give evidence related to Parliamentary Oversight.
The Commission will also hear evidence from the DA’s former Member of the Portfolio Committee on Transport from Manny de Freitas and Parliamentary Engagement Manager at the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse Matt Johnston.
Earlier this week, the Commission heard how Bosasa and its subsidiaries Phezulu and Sondolo continued to receive contracts despite concerns raised as early as 2008.
In his testimony, Democratic Alliance (DA) MP and member of the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services, James Selfe said the Department of Correctional Services continued to renew the contracts after the SIU flagged serious tender irregularities and the Auditor General and Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) raised concerns.
