Former president Jacob Zuma has released a statement saying that he will not appear before the State Capture Commission of Inquiry.

This is in response to last week’s Constitutional Court ruling that Zuma should appear before the commission to give evidence, adding that he doesn’t have a right to not say anything.

In the statement he says he does not fear being convicted nor afraid being incarcerated, adding that the highest court in the land has been politicised.

“It is clear that the laws of this country are politicised even at the highest court in land. I therefore state in advance that the commission into allegations of state capture can expect no further cooperation from me in any of their processes going forward,” states Zuma.

He adds that if this stance is considered to be in violation of “their” law, then “their” law should take its course.

In the statement Zuma concludes, “in the circumstances, I am left with no other alternative but to be defiant against injustice as I did against the apartheid government.”

Meanwhile, Constitutional Expert Mpumelelo Zikalala outlines options that the commission can implement going forward.
