He said there would probably be another hearing before the end of the year‚ and it would likely to resume again early in the next year.
The inquiry‚ headed by Zondo‚ was given a 24-month extension by the High Court in Pretoria from March‚ as long as there were no objections to the commission.
Zondo had approached the court last week seeking the extension‚ which was granted on Monday. It was‚ however‚ subject to a confirmation‚ which would be made on October 2‚ 2018.
The court has called on various people‚ including President Cyril Ramaphosa‚ public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane and political parties‚ to show cause why the 180 days should not be extended by 24 months‚ calculated from March 1.
Zondo said although the extension was subject to confirmation‚ it brought "relief" to the commission.
The commission of inquiry is looking into allegedly malfeasance in which high-profile politicians including former president Jacob Zuma have been implicated.
Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan‚ who is now public enterprises minister‚ has said the country is estimated to have lost R100-billion through state capture.
