ACCOUNTABILITY AT THE HEART OF TRUST
Article by: Dumisane Dube
The state capture commission said that it would be laying a criminal complaint against Jacob Zuma.
This is after former president Zuma released a statement that he will not be appearing at the commission going forward, defying the ConCourt order to appear at Zondo Inquiry.
The commission said it is warning Zuma to appear on 15 February or face further action.
In a statement released by former president Zuma on Monday, he stated that he will be defiant like he was during apartheid and he will not abide by the court’s judgment that compelled him to appear at the commission.
The commission further said it was clear that Zuma considered himself to be above both the law and the Constitution.
“Zuma continues to enjoy the benefits accorded to former presidents while defying the law and constitution of the country he once led,” said the commission.
The commission chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, says he will deal with attacks directed to him, separately.
