Johannesburg - Vytjie Mentor, a witness at the state capture inquiry, says she fears for her safety and is not comfortable returning to her hotel.
Mentor told chairperson of the commission deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo that she feared her hotel door has been tampered with.
Her stay at the hotel was arranged by the commission.
She was visibly afraid and cried as she recounted how a couple of days ago she suspected her hotel room did not lock properly.
"I tested the door with my card key and it freely opened, but it gave me an impression that it was locked. I am worried to go back to a hotel room that I do not know if it is safe," said Mentor as she wiped tears from her eyes.
