The testimony of former ANC MP, Vytjie Mentor, has revealed how former President Jacob Zuma tried to recruit her as a pliant minister through the Guptas.

But it has also included some strange statements and rambling moments. Here are five of the best:

1. Signature mystery 1

"The signature looks like mine but I don’t remember being at the place it was signed"

2. Signature mystery 2

"It’s looking like my signature but I normally close the ‘P’."

3. Strange gift

"He came to me with the corrupted statement. I showed him how corrupt it was in my handwriting."

4. Document 

"This document is supposed to be a supplementary statement but it doesn’t say what is it supplementing."

5. But did you sign it?

"If I signed it, I would have made a mistake. If I signed it."
