Former Public Enterprises Minister Barbara Hogan will be the first witness to take the stand when the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture resumes on Monday.

Hogan is expected to give details about former president Jacob Zuma's interference in the appointment of senior executives and board members at state-owned enterprises after he took office in 2009.

This interference is believed to have led to Hogan being booted out of Cabinet and an alleged offer by Ajay Gupta to then-ANC MP Vytjie Mentor to replace her.

According to Mentor, the offer was made at the Guptas' Saxonwold compound in 201 - before Hogan was even removed from her post.

Hogan had originally been set to testify last month, but the legal counsel for the inquiry asked for a postponement because it had not had sufficient time to properly review her statement.
