Johannesburg - The acting director general at the government communication and information system (GCIS) Phumla Williams has told the state capture inquiry that her predecessor Mzwanele Manyi is trying to tamper with her testimony.
Williams was giving testimony at the state capture inquiry on Friday and told the commission chairman deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo that she had received a text message, while giving testimony at the inquiry, from Manyi telling her to alter her evidence.
"Chairperson I got a text message from Mr Manyi who says I must say that the TNA Breakfasts did not happen during his time. I think he is trying to influence my submission," said Williams.
Zondo directed that the commission's investigators should look into the matter and that it be taken seriously and submitted as evidence.
"The legal team must apply their minds to the implications of the text message to the witness. It is something very serious," said Zondo.
