“In adherence to measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, strict social distancing protocols will be observed in the media gallery and this will result in a very limited number of seats available for members of the media,” the commission added.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has said the commission is determined to meet its March 2021 deadline.
