The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture will on Wednesday resume in Parktown, Johannesburg.

The commission will not hear any oral evidence but will be dealing with an application of a procedural nature related to some of the evidence that will be heard in the days to come.

Oral evidence will only be heard later this week.

The commission ended its work with two outstanding witnesses, who were expected to appear before the Zondo commission.

Vytjie Mentor was set to take the stand, with the legal team questioning some of her evidence presented while former Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi was expected to take the stand again.

Applications for cross examination have since been granted to those implicated by Mentor and Jonas.

The commission was set up amid loud cries of alleged systemic political corruption in which private interests, mainly by the Gupta family, were alleged to have had a significant influence in decision-making of state processes.
