Tom Moyane’s legal counsel, Advocate Dali Mpofu, cross-examined Gordhan at the state capture inquiry on Monday.

Mpofu referred to a comment Gordhan once made about Moyane being cheeky.  

He claimed the minister was being racist in this case.

“Now let me answer that finally chairperson because I seem to be going around the same tree all the time,” he said.

“I reject any notion of racism in my behaviour and I now put it to you that Mr. Moyane actually was the racist in this particular equation. Let’s leave it at that.”

On Monday, Moyane was permitted to cross-examine Gordhan on his Sars related testimony at the Zondo commission.
