Mzwanele Manyi Fires Shots At Zondo, Says He Is Not Worthy Of Being Called A Judge

Mzwanele Manyi who addressed the media on Saturday in response to chief justice Raymond Zondo's report, has fired shots saying the judge is unworthy of the title he holds.

Manyi said Zondo proved that he is not worthy when he proceeded to chair a Commission when he knew that he was conflicted after former president Jacob Zuma called for him to recuse himself.

Although Zuma didn't testify at the commission, Zondo's findings heavily implicated the former president of having been an enabler in the capture of the state by the Gupta family.

This state capture saw the country losing billions of taxpayers money. Zondo recommended that Zuma be further investigated although he failed to find any evidence during the years state capture commission was hearing testimonies.

Mzwanele Manyi had no kind words to describe the report by chief justice Raymond Zondo which he blasted and described as a "poisonous tree".

"The State Capture report is a classic case of the fruits of a poisonous tree. Then we deal with the conduct of justice Zondo himself during the inquiry. To say Zondo is unworthy of being called a judge will be a serious understatement.

Chief Justice Zondo failed the most basic of the test even of the most junior judge. No self respecting judge worthy of the title, sits in a case where he or she is directly affected and conflicted in order to settle personal scores," Mzwanele Manyi said.

Mzwandile Manyi also challenged the journalists to give him evidence that former president Zuma and Guptas captured the State.

None of the journalist who were present managed to say anything concerning that. Zuma's supporters claim it is because state capture is more about hear say, yet tangible evidence is hardly presented and that explains why chief justice Raymond Zondo recommended law enforcement to do further investigations.
