The Zondo commission is expected to hear evidence relating to the former minister's appointment in December 2015.

Fuzile gave evidence at the inquiry about the impact his appointment had on the Rand and Treasury.

Van Rooyen's appointment as finance minister was short-lived.

Former President Jacob Zuma removed him from the position after only a few days, following criticism.
