The announcement that Jacob Zuma testified before the Zondo commission gave him a round of applause, but intellectuals believe that the man is going to “duck and dive” without making any significant confession.
Although there were seats for about 200 people and special arrangements were made to accommodate the former ANC president, over 5,000 supporters arrived to gather outside the meeting room.
The Commission is concentrating on Zuma’s alleged involvement in the Gupta affair as well as in State capture, but the former president made no significant remarks or acknowledgments.
Zuma yesterday told the Zondo Commission of Inquiry that he is the victim of international organizations that have targeted him for years and made him appear to be corrupt.
It is not known how long Zuma will be interviewed and observers believe there will be little right to prosecute him.
