The State Capture Commission has released a statement after postponing the delivery of the verdict on Zuma’s application to have its chairperson recused, and has committed to giving the verdict today.
The State Capture Commission took to Twitter on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, to circulate a media statement on the reason for Deputy Chief Justice (DCJ) Raymond Zondo delaying his eagerly awaited verdict. This relates to former president, Jacob Zuma’s application for Zondo to recuse himself.
Zondo was scheduled to deliver his verdict on Wednesday after following due processes and giving the matter the necessary attention. However, despite the former president’s absence from the day’s proceedings, an affidavit by Zuma was furnished to the DCJ that warranted another postponement.
The affidavit is reportedly proof that Zuma and Zondo are friends, despite the DCJ’s vehement denial. It is believed to detail the time when Zondo was appointed as the DCJ and he paid Zuma a visit him at his presidential office. The affidavit allegedly refutes the claims by Zondo about their supposed friendship.
According to the statement, Zondo will deliver his verdict today, 19 November 2020, at 10:00.
