Former president Jacob Zuma’s son says his father is not diverting attention and is not avoiding answering questions at the state capture inquiry.
On Friday, Zuma’s legal team told the Zondo Commission that the former president will not be participating in the inquiry, citing an unfairness from the inquiry’s legal team.
Zuma then agreed to resume his testimony at a later stage after dropping his decision to withdraw. Edward Zuma said his father respects the Constitution.
“To show that former president Jacob Zuma respects the Constitution, he’s the one who formed this commission,” the young Zuma said.
“We are here to show that we respect the commission. In support of the former president, we are accompanying him as a family.
