Makhubela had failed to appear on July 24 before the inquiry for what was meant to be her initial appearance.
Judge Raymond Zondo, chairperson of the judicial commission of inquiry into state capture, has dismissed an application by former Prasa chairperson Tintswalo Makhubela, a sitting judge in Gauteng, to have her hearing postponed.
The amendment further notes the regulation does not derogate from the statutory powers and duties of any law enforcement agency and the commission.
The former minister is expected to conclude his testimony at the commission of inquiry into state capture on Wednesday.
The former minister says he would not have discussed the matters of one employee with another employee.
The former minister says it is a concern that agents of the state altered or deleted information from the first report on the rendition of Zimbabweans.
Instead, he suspended former Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya and former Hawks boss Anwa Dramat for their alleged role in the renditions.
The former minister, who will testify on a range of issues, says he was not aware of the criminal record of the individual he employed as his chief of staff.
The former minister says the said individual’s numerous qualifications, vast experience in the country’s public service made him the suitable candidate for the position.
The former Ipid head says he and his legal team need more time to prepare for the cross-examination.
Chairperson of the commission Raymond Zondo questions why Judge Tintswalo Makhubele has failed to prepare a responding affidavit since February this year.
One of the allegations the former minister will most likely respond to is that during his tenure he appointed a Zimbabwean convicted fraudster as chief of staff in his office.
If a summons, as opposed to a notice, is served on Gillingham, he will be obliged to appear before the commission on the date that will appear on the summons.
The commission was adjourned for the day until Wednesday at 10am.
Fraser’s legal representative, advocate Muzi Sikhakhane, on Monday said he would lay bare to the State Capture Commission ‘secrets that relate to presidents and judges’.
She says she believed Agrizzi had issues with Gavin Watson and so used the names linked to him in media reports and who were branded in a certain way to tarnish the late Bosasa CEO’s image.
