NPA to investigate claims of a media campaign against Zuma
The National Prosecuting Authority has asked the Public Protector to investigate allegations that the media is being used to bring down Jacob Zuma. Zuma has also accused the NPA of leaking affidavits to the media. The Mail & Guardian says Zumalashed out in a statement at two newspapers that published a story of a woman who claimed she was paid to provide favours for him. The newspapers claimed they had a transcribed version of the woman's testimony that was in the possession of the Scorpions. Zuma says he never met the woman. NPA spokesperson Makhosini Nkosi says they will give the Public Protector their full co-operation in the investigation.
