Deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo says he will on Tuesday announce his decision on whether former South African Revenue Service (SARS) boss Tom Moyane should be granted leave to cross-examine Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Zondo announced this on Friday morning before the testimony of former Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) head Robert McBride.Last month, the commission heard Moyane's application for leave to cross-examine Gordhan.

Moyane's advocate Dali Mpofu said Moyane's cross-examination of Gordhan was important.Mpofu read from Moyane's submission: "Under this theme, my version is that Minister Gordhan's affidavit is more significant for what it omits, than what it says.

The omitted facts will give a truer picture of the commission about what actually went on behind the scenes."LIVE: Nhleko 'did not understand the notion of the independence of IPID' - McBride tells #StateCaptureInquiryMpofu argued that it is "common cause that Gordhan is the first to testify against Moyane in the SARS inquiry".
