PETER BRUCE: Jacob Zuma’s tricks won’t work in court, but he’s practising
Former president Jacob Zuma’s testimony thus far at the Zondo commission has been an embarrassment. He can’t remember recent events, but recalls the treacheries of old with uncanny clarity. He can recall what a now dead minister felt about an issue but not what a live one does.
I figured Zuma for many things but coward wasn’t one of them. His legal team, such as it is, is doing him no favours with its strategy of blocking anything from the commission that may look or sound like cross-examination.
