Zuma appoints new legal team to tackle media

Sacked deputy president Jacob Zuma has reportedly appointed a legal team under a former Conservative Party MP to fight what he regards as his crucifixion by the media. News24 reports that Zuma has appointed Jurg Prinsloo, an advocate, and Wycliffe Mothuloe, a Johannesburg attorney, to investigate the possibility of defamation charges against newspapers. Prinsloo is a former CP MP for Roodepoort and the party's justice spokesperson. He represented Clive Derby-Lewis and Janusz Waluz in their trial for the murder of SACP leader Chris Hani. Zuma and his supporters have complained that the media formed part of a plot to prevent him becoming South Africa's next president.
