The Zondo commission has incurred R350 million in expenses since it began and in bid to cut costs, envisaging a likely extension of the scheduled February 2020 completion, it is likely to move premises early next year.

The Zondo commission is likely to move premises early next year to cut costs.

A breakdown of the costs shows that monthly rental for offices at Arena Holdings – which bought most of Tiso Blackstar publications and Hill on Empire, the building that has been used by the commission since its commencement – was R72 846.52 and the rental of the venue auditorium was R796 950, bringing the total to about R870 000.

Phiri said the commission has already identified the Johannesburg Council Chambers as a viable and cheaper alternative.

City Press contacted City of Johannesburg spokesperson Nthatisi Modingoane to inquire about how much rent the city would be charging the commission, however, at the time of publishing he had not responded to our questions.

A letter from the EFF last year, signed by deputy president Floyd Shivambu, asked commission chairperson Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo several questions about the procurement of the venue in Parktown, including how the bidding process to host the inquiry was facilitated.

The state owns venues that had been considered, Zondo said, including the Tshwane municipal building, Kempton Park Civic Centre, Emoyeni Conference Centre and The Joburg theatre in Braamfontein.

Why can't they use government buildings? Why the commission in the first place? In my view, we are dealing with clear cut crimes that require hawks to do forensic investigations, arrest and prosecute people. Finish n klaar. Too late to move premises, it should have been done from the beginning Your own fault you allow Zuma and the rest of the thieving mob postponements = more money for the Zondo commission workers.

Those CLUELESS MPs who used to make loud noise in parly as if they had evidence have not make a half page of evidence submitted at the commission,and they're now the ones making another noise about the cost incurred.Its dangerous to have clueless politicians in parliament. Useless commission no one will ever be apprehended

But the looks of things it hasn't found any evidence to the so called state capture. It's money wasted as it's intention was get rid of Zuma in the SA presidency. Or even paid for fees for a number of needy worthy kids out there Ukusa nje this thing won't even yield anything, just another way of chowing our taxes. No commission has ever brought about any justice. Money that could've atleast bought sanitary pads & delivered 2schools for those underprivileged communities
