The State Capture Commission resumed this morning.

North West Premier Job Mokgoro and SAA head of procurement Nontsasa Memela are expected to appear before the commission.

Since last week, the commission has been focusing on allegations of corruption in the Free State housing and asbestos project worth millions of rands.

Mokgoro has conceded that the State of the Province Address (Sopa) that he earlier said he relied on to approve airport development with South African Express never mentioned the project.

Community Safety and Transport CFO Kutlwano Phatudi testified that Mokgoro authorised the first payment of the contract with SA Express to manage the Mahikeng and Pilanesburg airports.

Phatudi also told the commission that procurement processes were flouted when the contract was awarded.
