Former president Jacob Zuma won't appear before the state capture commission of inquiry next week, the commission said on Thursday.
Zuma, the man at the heart of state capture claims against the Gupta family, was supposed to return to the commission on Monday.
But in a statement issued just after 12:00 on Thursday, the commission said it was informed that the former president and his legal team were unavailable "owing to circumstances relating to his criminal trial".
"The commission has taken note of this. Consequently, the former president will no longer appear before the commission next week," the statement read.
Zuma first appeared before commission chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, in July.
