PRETORIA - NPA Advocate Nomgcobo Jiba’s legal representative says his client denies receiving any bribes and is eager to deal with allegations that she received money from Bosasa chief executive Gavin Watson.

Former Bosasa employee Angelo Agrizzi makes the claim in his affidavit being presented at the state capture commission of inquiry.

He alleges that Jiba was being paid R100,000 a month to stop a prosecution based on a Special Investigating Unit report.

An inquiry into Jiba and Advocate Lawrence Mrwebi’s fitness to hold office has started in Centurion on Monday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed retired Constitutional Court Justice Yvonne Mokgoro to chair the hearings and make recommendations.

Jiba’s advocate Thabani Masuku says that his client has read about the allegations.

"Advocate Jiba is keen to deal with those allegations in the forum where they have been made. She has met with the investigators of the Zondo Commission but she has not received anything, so she's not in a position to give a direct response to the allegations themselves except to say she has not received any money from anybody. She has performed her work with diligence and professionalism and she will give her evidence at the right time."
