Jacob Zuma in deep trouble as his lawyers leaked his confidential information to the journalists.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said that it would investigate claims by previous President Jacob Zuma that investigator Billy Downer gave secret data to a journalist.Zuma had opened a case at the Pietermaritzburg Police Station, guaranteeing that Downer had violated the law.


Killjoy has been addressing the State in Zuma's defilement case and the previous president has been attempting to have him removed.Attention will currently move to the High Court in Pietermaritzburg to articulate on whether it will keep Downer on for Zuma's debasement case. That choice is normal next Tuesday.   Nonetheless, Wim Trengove, likewise addressing the State, has effectively demanded in Zuma's defilement case that the cases of inclination by the previous president against Downer were closed numerous years ago.But Zuma demands that they are new, charging that Downer gave over his clinical records to a writer.


Billy Downer is an employee of the state NPA. He didn't get permission from NDPP to give away confidential documents to journalists. This Andrian guy is just playing dumb, trying to influence those fragile minds here who think it's okay for Billy Downer to break rules while performing his functions as a state employee.


The media is trying to do damage control. Who gave Downer permission to give the media Zuma's medical records? Who gave permission to Downer to take those records out of the NPA offices? The records were for the NPA, not the media. A lawyer was given permission by Mr. Zuma to share it in public without Zuma's concerns or permission. I think Basson must think before he comments in public. Not all of us are less thinkers or buy what he ever said. " Facebook followers stated.



Jacob Zuma Foundation representative Mzwanele Manyi clarified the previous president's position: "His Excellency President Zuma comprehends that giving or spilling data that is gotten in the courts and extent of work is a criminal offense under the NPA Act and deserving of serious sentence," he said.The NPA said that it would take a gander at the most recent cases.
