Zondo noted Ramaphosa would testify in his capacity as the President and former deputy president of the country.

The chairperson, however, further said that Ramaphosa would need to complete his previous testimony relating to the ANC.

Ramaphosa, who was the deputy president of the ANC and country during former president Jacob Zuma’s tenure when state capture allegedly occurred, is expected to face tough questions from the commission.
