Zuma to report Zondo to the JSC. Read all about it here

Jacob Zuma Foundation spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi says they have taken a decision to report Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to the Judicial Service Commission. Jacob Zuma has instructed his layers to challenge the illegal appointment of Justice Zondo as Chief Justice. “Zondo commission is a toothless commission”, Many said. "I requested the Chief Justice to provide me with the name of the judge to head the Commission. He has selected Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Mnyamezeli Mlungisi Zondo to undertake this task. I urge everyone to cooperate with the commission of inquiry." Statement by Jacob Zuma.

Former President Jacob Zuma has denied that he abdicated his authority to the Guptas. This was heard as his Spokesperson, Mzwanele Manyi was reading his statement to respond to Zondo Commission. The former President caused a hype when it was announced that he would be attending a media briefing in person to respond to the Zondo report. However, Zuma pulled a no show, disappointing many people and media houses. According to Manyi, Zuma’s attendance was canceled as it was against his parole conditions. So the whole legal team did not know that for Zuma to travel to Gauteng was a violation when they arranged the media briefing. Or was it just a media stunt?

Manyi says the state capture report is full of gossip, innuendo and conjecture. “It is not clear what the commission has done R2 billion later.” In essence former president Jacob Zuma is challenging the outcomes of the Zondo report and the manner in which Zondo conducted himself during the commission. 

Manyi and the Zuma Foundation were actually delivering a political statement in defence of Zuma, launching attacks against the judiciary, CJ Zondo and President Cyril Ramaphosa. He offers no evidence of anything he is saying, including allegations against the chief justice. Zuma is the consummate victim. He has never accepted responsibility for his actions, and the briefing by Manyi is more of the same. Zuma is still claiming he is the victim if a biased process, which is untrue - Zuma chose to flee the commission when Zondo wanted to provide him repeated opportunities to state his case.

It is actually amazing to be living in Zuma’s world. Zuma refused to stand before the State Capture Commission but now he want to report Zondo. Zuma is running up and down trying to spite Zondo. Is his plan even going to work? Who is advising this man?
