Johannesburg - Deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo has allowed for Pravin Gordhan's testimony at the state capture inquiry, which was due to be heard on Friday, to be postponed.
Zondo has also agreed to postpone former minister Barbara Hogan's testimony which was due to be heard on Wednesday morning.
Hogan's testimony will now be heard on November 12 and Gordhan will appear on November 15.
Advocate Thandi Norman, for the commission's legal team, argued for the postponement application on Wednesday saying the team had various issues regarding the timeframe leading up to Hogan's appearance.
Norman said the commission had only received Hogan's full statement on Monday, October 8, and this hampered the time needed to notify those who might be implicated in her testimony. Those implicated in Hogan's testimony include former president Jacob Zuma.
