The former president's son, Duduzane Zuma, told the state capture commission of inquiry that serious rumours prompted him to facilitate a meeting between businessman Fana Hlongwane and former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas on October 23, 2015.
Zuma claimed in an affidavit that there were rumours that Hlongwane, a controversial figure linked to arms deal corruption claims, had blackmailed Jonas, News24 reported.
The meeting which he arranged was the infamous meeting in which, according to previous evidence, members of the Gupta family offered Jonas R600m to take up the position of finance minister. Jonas testified that Zuma drove him to the meeting.
"Firstly, I was not chosen. I decided to put the meeting together because there is a number of things being said in the background. I had raised this with Uncle Fana so by the third time, I asked him: 'Can we resolve this?' And I was left responsible for the meeting," Zuma told the inquiry on Monday.
