Former police minister Nkosinathi Nhleko, will on Tuesday, continue his testimony before the state capture commission.
He was implicated by several people, including the former head of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID), Robert McBride.
In April 2019, McBride told the commission Nhleko should explain why he hired a convicted criminal as his chief of staff while he was police minister.
On Monday, Nhleko said he was not aware of the conviction when he hired Leon Mbangwa.
The former minister said he had found Mbangwa through a recruitment exercise he conducted when his chief of staff left for another position in the police ministry.
