JOHANNESBURG – The South African Communist Party (SACP) wants to testify at the state capture inquiry.

The announcement was made by general secretary Blaze Nzimande at the party's Red October campaign launch in Mpumalanga on Sunday.

The party's Alex Mashilo says they are still meeting with lawyers.

“You can remember that the SACP was the first in South Africa to call for a judicial commission of inquiry into corporate state capture.

“Secondly, it is the SACP in South Africa that characterised what was going on as corporate state capture.”
