Manyi is concluding his testimony at the state capture commission on inquiry.
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.
