Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba is on Tuesday expected to appear before the Eskom parliamentary inquiry into allegations of State Capture.

He will be answering questions on allegations of State Capture between 2010 and 2014, the period when he was in charge of Public Enterprises.

Gigaba who has been described as the architect of State Capture by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), will testify and explain his role at Public Enterprises during those years.

Committee Chairperson Zukisa Rantho says, “He needs to come and clarify his role during the time he was minister of Public Enterprises, the procurement processes that were taking place… and he has been mentioned by Brian Dames that all the things changed in Eskom when he was a Minster in Public Enterprises.

“The three Gupta brothers and former South African Airways (SAA) Chairperson Dudu Myeni who were expected to testify will not appear before the committee.

Rantho says Myeni is still sick and the Guptas‘ lawyers say their clients are out of the country.
