Former South African President Jacob Zuma on Monday started giving testimony live on state television, at a state corruption inquiry.
He is expected to face the commission of inquiry on Monday, and for the rest of the week.
Zuma who resigned from office in 2018 was accused of supporting state corruption.
He is reported to have allowed his friends to influence senior government appointments during his presidency.
Mr. Zuma has always denied any wrong doing.
Zuma before he left office did not establish the inquiry despite a 2016 report by the country’s public protector for him to do so.
The three Gupta brothers who had strong link with former President Zuma have been at the centre of this state capture scandal.
