- "It saddened me what happened at Steinhoff and the losses incurred by people."

- "I have a family trust that has an investment company which had 68 million Steinhoff shares, worth R3bn."

- "I've lost my whole career that I spent at Steinhoff."

This is Jooste's first public appearance since his abrupt resignation in December. His testimony is ongoing.
