Mcebisi Jonas' full statement to state capture commission: 'They would kill me'

Former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas delivered several bombshells on Friday while he was guiding Deputy Chief Justice Ray Zondo through the chronology of events of state capture as he experienced it.

He told the commission that one of the Gupta brothers threatened to kill him should any details of the infamous meeting between him, Jonas, Duduzane Zuma (the son of former president Jacob Zuma) and businessman Fana Hlongwane ever become public.

He said that former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene was dismissed by then president Jacob Zuma in December 2015 because he did not want to authorise the nuclear deal.
