Gordhan: Jonas is extremely brave 

Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan has hailed Mcebisi Jonas' testimony at the judicial inquiry into state capture as "extremely brave".

Jonas delivered bombshell after bombshell 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.

Gordhan, who sat quietly at the back while listening to his former deputy's testimony, told News24 he has enormous respect for Jonas.

"He is extremely brave… this is what a true patriot does."
