President Jacob Zuma is believed to favour former chief justice Sandile Ngcobo to head the commission of inquiry into the controversial arms deal.
Media reports this morning that Ngcobo was approached last week to head the commission.
Zuma is to address the General Assembly of the United Nations on Wednesday and is expected to announce Ngcobo's appointment and the term of reference of the commission on his return.
The President’s announcement of the commission took many by surprise last week.
