Former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has given his backing to a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture, saying this would 'clear the air'.
He made the remarks in an interview with CNN.
Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, recommended in her State of Capture report that such an inquiry be established.
Gordhan told CNN'S Christiane Amanpour that the law needs to take its course if profoundly wrong things are done.
He told Amanpour he doesn't have any information which could implicate President Jacob Zuma.
The former minister did add suggestions not only about Zuma but about people in the private and public sector, needed to be tested.
He reiterated that he's worried about the state of the African National Congress, saying it may lose the 2019 elections. He also praised deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, calling him brave.
Ramaphosa has also called for a judicial commission of inquiry to probe allegations of state capture.
