PRETORIA - The Mokgoro inquiry has been postponed and will resume on Thursday.

Former deputy Prosecutions boss Willie Hofmeyr took the hotseat at the inquiry on Tuesday.

The inquiry is looking into senior prosecutors Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi's fitness to hold office. 

Hofmeyr was cross-examined on his affidavit where he implicated the late and former police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

He was being cross-examined by Mrwebi's counsel, Ally Ramawele SC.

He said Selebi received minutes from Mrwebi to try to apply for a permanent stay of prosecution.

Former President Jacob Zuma has also loomed large at the ongoing inquiry.

Hofmeyr explained on Monday what led to the dropping of charges against Zuma ten years ago.

Hofmeyr explained that at the time there was a systematic approach not to prosecute politicians.
