Cape Town – President Jacob Zuma is on Thursday expected to answer Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's questions about the Gupta family’s alleged influence on Cabinet decisions.

Madonsela started her probe into allegations of state capture in March, after the Catholic Dominican Order asked her to investigate.

The order wanted to know if the Guptas had offered Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas and former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor Cabinet positions; if the Guptas knew of Des Van Rooyen’s appointment as finance minister in December last year, before it was made public; and whether two senior advisers with links to the Guptas were appointed to the National Treasury alongside Van Rooyen, without procedure having been followed.

One of the priests who laid a complaint with Madonsela’s office, Father Brian Mhlangu, said they had received no official indication that her state capture report would soon be released.

Madonsela would this coming week try to conclude her preliminary report into state capture before leaving office on October 14. She had said she was in a race against time.
