JOHANNESBURG – The state capture commission is expected to resume on Monday morning, with former GCIS Head Mzwanele Manyi expected to take a stand.
Manyi pitched up the at the commission two weeks ago without any legal representation, he come to give his side after the testimony by GCIS acting Director-General Phumla Williams, who claimed that Manyi irregularly changed the tender processes at the GCIS, placing all final decisions under him.
Manyi, accused Williams of having the reins over the multi-million rand tender, which had multiple irregularities at government’s information department.
In early November, the state capture commission’s legal team revealed that its investigations had found the conduct of Manyi was connected to inappropriate government procurement to favour the Guptas businesses.
The commission intends to question him about his involvement of government’s task team that handled the closure of the Gupta banks.
Manyi has already accused the inquiry of being unfair, questioning why they wanted to cross exam him even though he did not apply too.
But the rules of the commission state that they can summon anyone for cross examination despite them not applying too.
