Former minister Malusi Gigaba told the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture that his estranged wife Nomachule Mngoma's testimony on his work as minister of public enterprises was littered with misrepresentations and lies.

On Monday afternoon, Gigaba testified before the commission on matters including his work at the Department of Public Enterprises, his reshuffling to National Treasury, his relationship with the Gupta family and the circumstances behind his and Mngoma's wedding in 2014.

Mngoma had previously told the commission that, among other things, Gigaba carried bags of money out of the Gupta Saxonwold residence when visiting them, that he wasn't ambitious for the role of minister of finance, and that he had the Guptas pay for expenses including campaign funding, renovations, and their wedding.
