JOHANNESBURG - Norma Mngoma, the estranged wife of former Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba is testifying before the State Capture Inquiry.

She was initially expected to testify earlier this month, but withdrew at the last minute.

This prompted Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to issue Mngoma with a summons.

Mngoma is widely expected to speak about Gigaba's relationship with the controversial Gupta family.

The inquiry started with Gigaba's application to have the hearing held in private.

During the day, he Commission heard from former Transnet Group CEO Siyabonga Gama. Gama has denied any involvement in state capture.

He claims he has suffered prejudice at the hands of the commission.
