The corruption case against ANC MP Bongani Bongo has been transferred to the Western Cape High Court.
Bongo made his third appearance in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday where he was handed a witness list and confirmation of the indictment against him.
The National Prosecuting Authority says he will appear at a pre-trial conference on 17 April.
The former state security minister and now chair of the parliamentary committee on home affairs is facing a charge of corruption relating to an allegation that he offered a bribe to Ntuthuzelo Vanara, the evidence leader of the parliamentary inquiry into the capture of Eskom by the Guptas.
Vanara says Bongo gave him a blank cheque, so he would suppress the investigation in exchange.
Bongo and his supporters say there is a political plot against them because they support radical economic transformation.
His trial is set to start on the 3 August.
