Motsoeneng has been accused of massive interference in the functioning of the SABC newsroom for political interests.
His much-anticipated testimony is expected to respond to some of the allegations made against him by other witnesses.
On Monday, former SABC board chairperson Ben Ngubane explained to the commission how Motsoeneng managed to rise to top management at the SABC without a matric certificate.
"He succeeded as a stakeholder manager. There was a new challenge and he was thought to be able to do it. Just from going to that to becoming acting COO, it wasn't a matter of qualification, it was a matter of being able to do the job."
Last week SAfm executive producer and member of the so-called SABC 8, Krivani Pillay, told the commission how Motsoeneng's seemingly irrational decisions like muting political analysts were designed to protect former President Jacob Zuma and the ANC from criticism.
Another SABC 8 member Foeta Krige told the commission last week how Motsoeneng ruled the broadcaster by decree and had people who stood in his way removed.
Proceedings are expected to start at 10am.
