Former President Jacob Zuma gestures while testifying at the State Capture Commission on 17 July 2019
JOHANNESBURG - Former President Jacob Zuma won't testify at the State Capture Inquiry next week.
Zuma was scheduled to resume his testimony on Monday.
The Commission says Zuma and his legal team are unavailable next week due to the former President's criminal trial.
It says, however, a previous agreement to appear between the 11th and 15th of November still stands.
Zuma's facing charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering relating to the multi-billion-rand arms deal.
The KwaZulu-Natal High Court dismissed his bid for permanent stay of prosecution.
But Zuma is appealing that judgment and the case was postponed to February next year.
