There's no person who is desperate to prove his "innocence" than former President Jacob Zuma. The convicted former President is still in hospital waiting to be discharged to go home and continue serving his 15 month sentence under medical parole. Zuma wants justice, not pity! He has broken his silence in a long script that was shared by his foundation on Twitter. Zuma wrote s letter of amazing detail, application and consideration in the interpretation of a judgment for a 79 year old man released on medical parole and still hospitalised by all accounts. Zuma says he is disappointed that Mzansi is in the process of changing from a Constitutional democracy to a Constitutional dictatorship.
Zuma spilled the beans about how the State Capture process was not properly conducted because it was a case "that had something to do with Zuma". He is insinuating that he was the target from the inception of the whole inquiry. According to Zuma, the Public Protector and judges deviated from following the rules of the Constitutional Court to specifically deal with him. It is quite obvious that Zuma is still disgruntled by the fact that Judge Raymond Zondo failed to recuse himself from the case. He says it was all because there has always been a personal vendetta against him. The former President is certain that his rights were overlooked and compromised. Zuma says he has been a political prisoner for 10 years under the apartheid regime and now he's a prisoner without a trial in the new South Africa, which is said to be respectful of people's rights.
Zuma's letter displays a very angry man who is prepared to go to all levels to finally have justice served. The last part of his letter shows that his case is far from over. "I will fight, justice shall prevail and injustice shall be defeated," Zuma concluded.
We can hate Zuma all we want...the truth is the water has been muddied. Most can't see beyond that. He raises some really interesting points that I believe( soberly) will have a terrible effect on the future dispensation of the law. Jacob Zuma seems to be ready to tell it all. Is his letter part one of the beans he has been threatening to spill?
