Jacob Zuma’s legal fees costing the state

By Sasha Forbes

The DA has always maintained that the state should not have to pay for Jacob Zuma’s legal fees. Even though it is common practice in different countries to pay for such costs when cases relate to the carrying out duties.

Len Jobert spokesperson for Justice and Constitutional Development says “when Mr Zuma committed the alleged fraud, he did not do that in his official capacity and because you cannot do such a thing in your official capacity. So it was in his private capacity, for that reason the state should not be paying for his legal fees.”
