#StateCaptureInquiry Rousing applause - the loudest yet - as former President Jacob Zuma enters the @StateCaptureCom inquiry venue. His supporters are buoyant this morning. "Zuma, Zuma, Zuma," they chanted with increasing pace. Zuma takes his seat.
#StateCaptureInquiry Chairperson Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo says he does not know what is going to happen. He says he noted that a television station reported at 18:00 Zuma would continue his evidence today and has asked for an investigation.
Zondo has read some legal correspondence. "As to what is going to happen I am still going to hear. I got very little time to read so I hope I didn't miss anything in the correspondence," he says. "I didn't pick up anything that was clear as to what is going to happen."

#StateCaptureInquiry Remember when @TreasuryRSA Minister of Treasury Nhlanhla Nene answered eNCA’s @samkelemaseko asking if he would testify? Nene said, “Watch this space.” And later, after some pressing from Maseko, “Watch the space, meaning a lot of us might be appearing soon.”
#StateCaptureInquiry Nene will be the first sitting minister to testify at the inquiry. Previously Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan attended hearings, when his former right hand man Mcebisi Jonas testified, saying a Gupta brother offered him the Finance Minister job.
#StateCaptureInquiry Nene will testify on events around then President Jacob Zuma firing him at night on 9 December 2015. Zuma said at the time, “I wish Mr Van Rooyen all the best in this new appointment. The new deployment of Mr Nene will be announced in due course.”
