The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC) called former president Jacob Zuma’s attack on the judiciary ‘remarkable in its callousness.’
Zuma faces arrest after the state capture commission of inquiry seeks to hold him in contempt of court and request a jail sentence.
This after the former statesman failed to appear yesterday to testify before the commission.
In response Zuma issued a statement saying he stood by his decision to not cooperate with the commission chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
He accused the judiciary of being compromised adding it was hiding bribes paid by Cyril Ramaphosa to win the ANC Presidency.
CASAC’s Lawson Naidoo says it seems Zuma is willing to stoop as low as is necessary to avoid accountability.
Kaya Breakfast spoke to Political Analyst, Mpumelelo Mkhabela about the implications of former President Jacob Zuma not showing up at the Zondo Commission.
ANC calls for cooperation
Meanwhile KwaZulu-Natal ANC Chairperson Sihle Zikalala has called on the leadership of the organization to engage with former President Jacob Zuma.
Zikalala says Zuma’s non-appearance at the Zondo Commission will have a negative effect on the ANC.
Zikalala addressed the matter while speaking during the opening session of a two-day provincial ANC Lekgotla in Durban.
