The three have pulled Zuma toward the North Gauteng High Court in a bid to topple the Department of Correctional Services' choice to allow the ex-president clinical parole.
On Tuesday, Zuma's attorney Thabani Masuku SC let North Gauteng High Court Judge Keoagile Matojane know that he ought to excuse the application as the candidates (the HSF, AfriForum and the DA) had no locus standi (remaining) to bring the application.
He said that conceding the application would have no pragmatic legitimate impact and that they were requesting Zuma's more right than wrong to protection to be abused as it would prompt the previous president's clinical records being sprinkled in papers.
"They are looking to embarrass Mr Zuma," Masuku said, adding that they needed the previous ANC pioneer to emerge from jail just when he was going to pass on.
He said the HSF, AfriForum and the DA were political associations and Zuma their political enemy.
"They need to embarrass Zuma. Zuma doesn't have an obligation to uncover his ailments to his political adversaries."
Masuku said Zuma was as yet in jail since he was carrying out his punishment in spite of being therapeutically paroled.
"There is no earnestness met by the candidate. They don't have the full realities."
Masuku said the candidates had no case to Zuma's clinical protection and that the issue was not really dire that it justified the high court's mediation.
"The interests of equity would necessitate that what they require is an unsettled cure," he said.
