JOHANNESBURG - ANC NEC member Fikile Mbulula says former president Jacob Zuma should also come before the commission.

Mbalula wrapped his testimony before the State Capture Commission of Inquiry on Friday.

"I suppose he will come to the commission, there is no way of escaping. As the man standing at the centre of being accused, there is no choice but to come.

"As the ANC we will give our full account of what happened, that is coming at a later stage."

Mbalula was at the commission to answer to how he came into contact with the infamous Gupta brothers.

He responded to allegations made in former Minister of Finance Trevor Manuel's testimony last month.

According to Manuel's testimony, Mbalula learned of his promotion to sports minister at the Gupta Saxonworld compound in 2010.
