Johannesburg - Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's testimony before the commission looking into state capture has been postponed to November 19 from Thursday.
Commission chairman, deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, said he had granted an application by Gordhan applied to move the date.
''It is important that the public know that has been a change," Zondo said.
"The order I made was in accordance with agreement that commission's legal team and Gordhan's lawyers made, included that apart from giving evidence 19th, he will be available on Tuesday 20th in case he is needed and in case a leave to cross-examine is brought forward."
Gordhan's statement was leaked and widely reported on last week, prompting Zondo to issue a statement of condemnation. He said an investigation into the incident was underway and urged media houses to desist from publishing evidence before witnesses appeared before the commission.
