Parliament hands over state capture evidence to Zondo inquiry
House chairperson Cedric Frolick revealed during a budget debate that he handed over volumes of transcripts and other evidence to lead investigator Terence Nombembe.
Frolick has now in a notice to the National Assembly detailed the extent of the evidence submitted to the Zondo inquiry, which is due to start in August.
He says he responded to a request from Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo in April for Parliament to hand over copies of the transcripts of meetings held by portfolio committees investigating allegations of state capture.
The bulk of the evidence handed to the judicial commission of inquiry stems from investigations into Eskom.
This includes testimony from former Eskom chief executive Brian Molefe on his controversial R30 million pension payout.
Parliament has also given the inquiry about 175 pages of evidence from four meetings of its Home Affairs Committee inquiring into the naturalisation of members of the Gupta family.
