The Zondo Commission has given the go-ahead for its legal to run with the application to issue a summons for former president, Jacob Zuma to appear before the commission in November.
The Zondo State Capture Commission took to Twitter on Friday, 9 October 2020, to share a live update of the hearing of the state’s legal team on running with the application to issue a summons for former president, Jacob Zuma to appear before the commission. The matter was a contentious one, considering the statement released by The Jacob Zuma Foundation suggesting that the summons and subpoena are politically motivated.
However, despite this, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has given permission for the summons to be issued. This means that Zuma will have to face the commission between Monday, 16 November and Friday, 20 November 2020.
The verdict was given based on Zondo expressing that he is “satisfied with the submissions of the legal team.”
