Johannesburg - uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) spokesperson Carl Niehaus says he doesn't believe former president Jacob Zuma is guilty of state capture, blaming the media for pre-judging Zuma.
Niehaus was speaking ahead of the highly-anticipated appearance of Zuma, who's expected to give testimony before the commission from July 15-19.
Zuma has been implicated by several high-profile figures, who've all accused him of playing a central role in state capture, and of benefiting by facilitating the looting of state coffers by the Gupta family.
Those who implicated him included former Cabinet spokesperson Themba Maseko, former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas, and former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor, among others.
Niehaus, speaking to Independent Media on the sidelines of the commission, said he believed the concept of state capture had been misused.
