JOHANNESBURG – Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan will not be testifying on Thursday anymore as initially planned and will only appear before the state capture commission next week Monday.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo says he granted Gordhan‘s application to move his appearance from Thursday to next week.

While the deputy chief justice did not give reasons for this change, it could have something to do with the fact that the minister has been subpoenaed to appear before the Public Protector on Thursday.
