It’s a date: Zuma’s Zondo moment
Former president Jacob Zuma has at least agreed to ‘appear’ at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture. But what that will entail is far from clear
Former president Jacob Zuma has agreed to "appear" at the Zondo inquiry into state capture in less than a month — an appearance that could mark the first time he responds publicly to allegations that he and his administration were "captured" by private interests. If he actually chooses to testify, that is.
Zuma hasn’t been subpoenaed to appear at the inquiry, chaired by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo, but has been "invited" by its officials to "give his side of the story".
