Johannesburg - Transnet board chair Popo Molefe is expected to be among the first witnesses at the Zondo commission's probe into the state-owned company.
Advocate Paul Pretorius, the head of the commission's legal team, gave a broad overview of the evidence the commission will be probing over the next few weeks.
The commission will first look at the forensic reports that were compiled as part of investigations into Transnet over the past couple of years.
Some of the reports to be probed include the recent Mncedisi Ndlovu and Sedumedi Attorneys (MNS) report. This investigation found that former Transnet executives Brian Molefe and Anoj Singh had introduced Gupta-linked Regiments Capital and Trillian Capital to the SOE which enable the companies to score millions in consulting fees.
The report found that the companies were illegally favoured and it recommended that Molefe and Singh including former CEO Siyabonga Gama be charged for their role in the contracts awarded.
