The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says it needs water tight evidence on allegations of state capture, before pushing for prosecution.

"There's a lot of evidence and cases at the commission. In addition to that there are number of cases that are not alluded to at the commission. There's a lot of court cases relating to corruption that is in the court space... the cases are not court ready," said Batohi.

"We will certainly once they are court ready proceed to take them to court, building these cases are complex. People need to understand that there's a difference between testifying at the inquiry and getting a water tight case to charge people," she said.

She has also denied rumours circulating online that she had been paid  R1,750,000 by Cyril Ramaphosa's CR17 campaign fund.

According to the rumours, she was paid the money on March 14 2018.
