Dali Mpofu made various allegations on behalf of his client – fired Sars boss Tom Moyane – about Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture on Wednesday, where he was applying for permission to cross-examine the minister.

The Citizen reported earlier on Wednesday that Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has reserved his decision on Moyane’s application to cross-examine Minister Gordhan.
