The state capture commission is set to hear testimony from former justice and constitutional development director-general Nonkululeko Sindane.

During his testimony on Tuesday at the Zondo commission, former transport minister Ben Martins denied having prior knowledge of the Gupta family's plan to land a privately chartered plane at the Waterkloof Air Force Base in April 2013.

"No one approached me on the Waterkloof landing issue," Martins claimed.

He further went on to claim that he became aware of the landing when an Air Traffic Navigation Services official called to inform him that a plane – which took off from India's Indira Gandhi International Airport – had entered SA's airspace without permission.
