JOHANNESBURG - Former GCIS head Mzwanele Manyi has asked the evidence leader at the state capture commission of inquiry to recuse himself.

Manyi says that Advocate Vincent Maleka is treating him like a criminal.

He was meant to conclude his testimony at the commission on Tuesday morning but he will now have to return at a later stage.

Manyi has accused Maleka of bias in his line of questioning.

Maleka responded, saying he is only doing his job.

Manyi will now draft an affidavit and make a formal application for Maleka to recuse himself, which deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo will consider and make a ruling on the matter.
