Norma Mngoma, the estranged wife of former finance minister Malusi Gigaba, who was meant to spill the beans on her husband’s alleged relations with the Guptas has now withdrawn from testifying at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

Mngoma was meant to begin her testimony at 4pm on Tuesday after it was initially rescheduled from Friday.  However, the commission heard from Mngoma’s legal representative, who said she wished to withdraw from her participation in the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Tuesday said he would issue a summons compelling Norma Mngoma to testify. The state capture commission said it was disappointed after getting ready and learning that Mngoma had decided to withdraw from testifying. It further went on and said it was surprising Mngoma made such a decision as she was ready to testify on Friday.
