"The two teams will agree on the timeframe within which the former president's counsel will provide the former president's statements in regards to the specific areas of interest … If the two sides are not able to agree on the timeframe, they will approach me.
"It is contemplated within this agreement that at a certain stage the former president will come back and give evidence and it is contemplated that with the process that has been agreed to by all sides, it may well be that the time in which he needs to testify might be shortened."
The commission will continue on Monday when it will hear evidence regarding the Estina dairy farm scandal.

Zondo announced that he would intervene to resolve the impasse after Zuma's lawyer, Muzi Sikhakhane, earlier on Friday told the commission that Zuma would no longer participate in the commission's proceedings.
Zondo had adjourned proceedings on Wednesday when Zuma said he had a problem with the commission's evidence leader Paul Pretorius's line of questioning. Zondo gave both legal teams one day to resolve the impasse.
