"There will be no hearing tomorrow, next Monday and Tuesday." Chair Zondo said. He added that the public will be told about Friday,
This is the end of today's proceedings.
"I'm going to postpone the cross-examination of Agrizzi and I won't set a date... But the date will be set as soon as possible." Chair Zondo states.
"I'm inclined to not allow too much time but at the same time I don't want to be unfair to both parties." Chair Zondo said.
Counsel for Agrizzi say their client has never asked for a postponement and has always availed himself. The counsel is not happy with the possible postponement.
It seems Chair Zondo might postpone today's cross-examination...
Defence for Mr Wakeford say their client is unhappy.

The former Bosasa executive also told the inquiry that the facilities company paid journalists to provide it with information.
Agrizzi fingered many more people including former SAA chair Dudu Myeni…
The former Bosasa executive said Mokonyane received many gifts from the company every year starting from the time she became MEC in Gauteng.
He claimed Mokonyane was also paid instalments of R50,000 for some time in exchange for her influence to stop criminal investigations into Bosasa.
Agrizzi also confirmed that Bosasa gifted minister Nomvula Mokonyane with groceries, expensive alcohol and meat every year, adding the company even paid for her relatives’ funerals.
But wait, there's more...
Should Wakeford succeed in poking holes in Agrizzi's treasure trove of evidence, it is likely to open a gateway for even more applications for his cross-examination by those he alleged were at the receiving end of the Bosasa largess.
Agrizzi also stated under oath that Wakeford received a R100,000 monthly fee from Bosasa to "resolve its Sars issues".
During his testimony, he testified that Wakeford was complicit in bribery and corruption at the company, which allegedly scored government contracts which were characterised by improper conduct.
Agrizzi was the star witness at the inquiry as he delivered an explosive testimony in January.
