State Security Agency (SSA) is back in the spotlight at the state capture commission of inquiry.

The commission has called former senior SSA officials Mo Shaik and Gibson Njenje to testify today.

The former head of the South African Secret Service Shaik took up the position in 2009 when former President Jacob Zuma appointed Minister Siyabonga Cwele to the portfolio.

But in 2011, Shaik and head of the national intelligence agency Njenje were ousted from the agency.

It is believed the pair had planned to investigate the influence of the Gupta family on the state.
