In a case where Jacob Zuma would be the speaker at a breakfast session of The New Age, Transnet agreed to sponsor it for R2m, witnesses said before the commission.
Hofmeyr says she wants to point out how prices rose for the breakfast sessions.
Phatlane says he had questions about how the breakfast sessions suddenly cost R3m. It was only R735 000 when it started, then R1 million and then R3 million for 2 breakfasts.
Hofmeyr says the president was certainly an excuse for the one breakfast. But what about the others.
Phatlane says the breakfast where the president would speak is R2 million and the other R1 million.
