The State House in a statement issued before Kenyatta's departure said the Kenyan leader will hold talks with his host, South African President Jacob Zuma on a wide range of areas including trade, security and infrastructure development.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo is expected to head the commission.

Maimane pointed out that Zuma was still the subject of legal scrutiny after the North Gauteng High Court recently rejected his legal challenge to the public protector's state capture report‚ which had called for a commission of inquiry to be established.

The Court ordered that, among other things, the remedial action of the Public Protector is binding and that the President is directed to appoint a commission of inquiry within 30 days, headed by a judge exclusively selected by the Chief Justice.

"I am concerned that this matter has occupied the public mind for some time now and deserves urgent attention", Zuma said.

Cape Town - Within hours of a commission of inquiry into state capture being announced, the battle began over the crucial question of exactly what should be investigated.

Madonsela had ordered the inquiry into allegations that the Guptas may have influenced the appointment of cabinet members in Zuma's administration and received special treatment for a coal business linked to the family and one of the president's sons. Zuma and the Guptas have denied all accusations of wrongdoing.

While the president has appealed the cost order and the judgment regarding the duties of the president to appoint commissions, he said in a statement on Tuesday he is taking further legal advice on this.

Similar sentiments were expressed by President Zuma during his announcement of the appointment of the inquiry.

Last month the ANC's new head, Cyril Ramaphosa, vowed to wipe out corruption in the party's ranks.

Ramaphosa is set to distance himself from Zuma as the ANC seeks to retain its absolute majority in next year's general elections even if the latter still retains a constituency of support within the movement after 10 years as its leader.

In power since 2009, Zuma stepped down in December as president of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party after a 10-year tenure marked by numerous court judgements against him.
