Johannesburg - Former president Jacob Zuma is on Friday expected back in the hot seat at the state capture commission of inquiry, chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
Zuma started giving evidence on Monday and was scheduled to appear before the commission for the whole week.
However, in an unexpected turn of events on Wednesday, the former president and his legal team brought proceedings to a halt shortly after lunch. Their complaint was that Zuma was being cross-examined "very thoroughly" about details he knew nothing about.
His legal team and that of the commission butted heads occasionally over questions put to the former president.
Matters came to a head when Zuma's senior counsel Advocate Muzi Sikhakhane threatened to advise his client against cooperating with the commission should the line of questioning remain the same.
