The Commander in Chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is emphasizing the fact that former President Jacob Zuma is innocent until proven guilty by the court of law not by public opinion. True the Constitution says that.

Everybody would agree with the Commander in Chief on this because Julius Malema respects the rule of law and he appears to Court's whenever he is summoned to do so. He uses every opportunity given to clear up his name.This is not the case with the former President Jacob Zuma. When he was still the President of the Republic he use to speak in public that he needs to have his day in court to clear up his name from all the allegations labelled against him. Now the courts are ready to give him platforms to clear up his name but he is defying and trying all avenues to evade prosecution. If he is innocent as he claims, he should be appearing before the DCJ Raymond Zondo in the State Capture Commission but he said he will not appear to give evidence in that Commission. Also he is trying to force the court to throw the arms deal corruption charges through the window.

How can Julius Malema stick on this saying that Zuma is innocent until proven guilty while he does not want to appear in court or before the commission to clear his name? It is high time now to also use that everyone who tries to face trial must be considered guilty until he honours the summons and appear before courts to clear his name.

What do you make of this saying that says "innocent until proven guilty by the court of law"? Please share your thoughts, like and comment.
