The incident took place in March last year when Mpofu objected to Le Roux’s re-examination of Gordhan.
Mpofu was representing former SA Revenue Service commissioner Tom Moyane, who Gordhan implicated in his testimony to the commission in 2018.
Le Roux interrupted Mpofu’s objection to ask if she could explain her question. Chairperson Raymond Zondo agreed.
Mpofu told Zondo he still “had the floor” and said Le Roux must “shut up”.
“Chair, I’m on the floor. Really, I can’t stand this. This cannot be happening for the third time. Miss Le Roux must shut up when I am speaking. You too, Mr Gordhan,” Mpofu said.
