JOHANNESBURG - Former African National Congress (ANC) member of Parliament Vytjie Mentor has taken to social media, saying she will not speak to President Jacob Zuma regarding an investigation into state capture by outgoing Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, unless it's on a public platform.

Yesterday, Zuma requested Madonsela provide him with the names and testimonies of all those she interviewed, with regards to his relationship with the Gupta family.

Mentor revealed on Facebook earlier this year how she'd been offered a Cabinet post by the controversial family.

Her testimony has formed part of Madonsela's investigation.

In the Facebook post, Mentor says prepared to speak to Zuma in a publicly televised hearing, only after the Public Protector has released her report.

Mentor goes on to say she's not scared of Zuma, calling him a coward that hides behind state power.

She says the president is making silly demands and she feels sorry for him.

Zuma met with Madonsela last week to ask for a postponement to prepare his evidence.

Madonsela says she's concerned that Zuma agreed to answer questions in the state capture investigation on two occasions, only to change his mind.
