Durban - Political analysts believe that it would be a wise move for former President Thabo Mbeki to appear before the state capture commission to clarify his links with the Guptas.
The family which has since left the country is alleged to be behind the capturing of the state .
Political analysts, Ralph Mathekga and Xolani Dube of the Xubera Institute of Research and Development both agreed that Mbeki’s appearance is much-needed in order to clear his name and even provide answers and offer clear perspective.
This comes after Zuma on Monday told the commission that the Guptas had previously had relationships with Mbeki and Nelson Mandela.
In his response, Mbeki said even if it were true that he introduced the Gupta family to Zuma, unless it is alleged and proven that he did so with an improper motive, he would not be held responsible for whatever may or may not have transpired thereafter between Zuma and the Gupta family.
