Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe on Sunday would not confirm whether he had been invited to appear before to the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture.
When contacted by News24, Molefe mumbled comment about the media house and then said the word "no".
When asked if this "no" was suggesting he had not been invited to appear before the state capture inquiry, the call was cut.
Earlier, Eyewitness News reported that Molefe had been extended the opportunity to either give evidence before the state capture inquiry or to call or question witnesses.
The commission resumes its proceedings on Monday, with Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan expected to testify next.
Attempts by News24 to confirm with the Zondo commission that Molefe had been invited were unsuccessful.
