Zuma: I believe Zondo targeted me and it came to me as no surprise

Former President Jacob Zuma said earlier he sought to have the state capture commission inquiry chair deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo as the chair of the commission. But, now the former president wants to challenge his position.

Zuma claims that the appointing Zondo as the state capture commission of Inquiry chairperson was unconstitutional.

Zuma has filed yet another court bid to oust acting chief justice Zondo as head of state capture. His application was lodged shortly before the commission released part 1 of its report to president Cyril Ramaphosa.

The report made damning findings against Zuma regarding his links to the Gupta family and state capture.

Zuma has applied to amend his application. He said Zondo's appointment was unconstitutional and any ruling directives and decisions by him must be declared unconstitutional and unlawful. He seeks an order that Ramaphosa appoint a new chairperson.

Zuma claims that Zondo was biased in making the applications to the constitutional court for orders that he must appear before the commission and later for contempt of court.
