State Capture testimony doesn’t implicate Zuma: Lawyer

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Former President Jacob Zuma‘s lawyers say they do not believe that the testimonies of former African National Congress (ANC) MP Vytjie Mentor, former GCIS head Themba Maseko and acting GCIS head Phumla Williams in any way implicate their client in State Capture.

Advocate Daniel Mantsha says the former president cannot at this stage comment on the phenomenon of State Capture.

Mentor has accused Zuma of being at the Saxonwold Gupta residence when Ajay Gupta offered her the position of Public Enterprises Minister.

Maseko has told the inquiry that Zuma had called him to assist the Guptas in their media project while he was Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) Director-General.
