Let us unpack things before Gordhan takes the hot seat on Friday. The Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan, will finally take the hot seat in what will probably be the most anticipated testimony in Deputy Chief Justice, Raymond Zondo’s commission of inquiry into state capture.
The state capture inquiry continues on Friday and Gordhan is up next. The Minister of Public Enterprises has been one of the more outspoken Cabinet ministers about state capture so it will be interesting what he will reveal about the little we know.
What we know ahead of Pravin Gordhan state capture testimony
Gordhan was the Finance Minister when former president Jacob Zuma first took up the office. The questionable rotations came during Zuma’s second term, where he was moved to the ministry of cooperative governance and traditional affairs.

Furthermore, Business Day reported that
in December 2015, after the president had removed Nene as finance minister, which sent the rand into free fall, he was forced to reconsider his decision and reappointed Gordhan as finance minister after four days. A little more than a year later Zuma removed Gordhan, again weakening the rand.
After being fired from the cabinet, Gordhan joined parliament’s portfolio committee on public enterprises, which was investigating corruption and allegations of state capture within institutions such as Eskom. Gordhan returned to the executive in February as public enterprise minister after Zuma quit and President Cyril Ramaphosa was elected.
If Nene’s testimony was anything to go by, we can expect all the fireworks on Friday. His predecessor, Barbara Hogan, is set to testify at the state capture inquiry on Wednesday (Today).

Hogan was implicated in the state capture inquiry by the former ANC MP, Vytjie Mentor. Mentor had alleged that the Gupta family had offered her the position of Minister of Public Enterprises, which was filled by Hogan at the time, under the condition that she cleared the removal of the South African Airways’ route to Mumbai, India.
