Former ANC Member of Parliament Vytjie Mentor is testifying before the state capture commission of inquiry headed by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo.

Mentor, who hails from the Northern Cape, rose to prominence when she revealed details of the alleged influence the Gupta family wielded over former president Jacob Zuma. Among the sensational claims Mentor will be testifying about is an offer she claims was made to her at the Guptas' Saxonwold compound that she replace then-public enterprises minister Barara Hogan. Mentor says Zuma was at the Gupta mansion when the offer was made to her by one of the Indian businessmen.

Mentor says she refused the offer and as she was about to leave, Zuma walked in. ''He kept saying don’t worry ntombazana, everything will be fine,'' Mentor alleged.
