Johannesburg - The Zondo commission was delayed for over an hour after businessman Mzwanele Manyi has asked that a member of the Zondo commission's legal team recuse himself from leading him in evidence.
Manyi later changed his mind, after an hour, and said he was no longer seeking to apply for Maleka to recuse himself.
The businessman started off his second day of testimony at the inquiry on Tuesday and projected himself as a victim saying he was unhappy with how Advocate Vincent Maleka, a member of the commission's legal team, was questioning him.
The former government spin doctor said he felt Maleka was not fair in how he cross-examined him during his first day of testimony on Monday and said it was contrary to how Maeleka had previously asked questions to other witnesses.
"Yesterday, Mr Maleka's posture actually confirmed my fears. His posture was prosecutorial as opposed to evidence leader and I am not so sure what is happening now because I came here under the pretence of answering questions to assist the commission, but I feel I am the accused.
