The Democratic Alliance says it welcomes the Pretoria High Court’s decision to decline a bid by the former deputy President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma to stop the state from investigating his business activities in Britain.
“Mr Zuma and his very expensive legal team, who seem to shadow him around the country, must not further attempt to obstruct, delay and resist the investigations by the state,” says DA spokesperson Eddie Trent.
Trent says Zuma has repeatedly made public statements that a legal proceeding will acquit him from all suspicions of corruption.
“The DA now challenges Mr Zuma to do everything in his power to provide the state with the information they need in order for this case which has been ongoing for more than two years to reach its conclusion in court sooner rather than later,” says Trent.
