"Durban – In a bombshell statement on Monday morning, former president Jacob Zuma told the country he will openly defy a Constitutional Court ruling that compelled him to surrender himself to the Zondo commission and answer questions posed to him.

In a statement Zuma personally issued (not from his legal team or his foundation as usual), he said for far too long the country’s judiciary had thrown out the rule of fairness and made rulings solely aimed at humiliating him."

Does he know he cant be jailed where HE CHOOSES? I think he still thinks he can steal our tax money to pay for his new "prison".

Send the Hawks and the Scorpions and Seal Team Six and the National Guard, and the Recces and the Revolutionary Guard. That should be enough.

Calculated move. Invariably being jailed for being in contempt of court won't be nearly as harsh as being jailed on account of his testimony.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when he gets released...can he be jailed twice for refusing the same testimony?

Wouldn't surprise me if his all ready in Dubai , hanging out with his Gupta friends, hence why he doesnt care about the Zondo commission at all.

Signing off, he told the commission he did not fear being jailed.

“In the circumstances, I am left with no other alternative but to be defiant against injustice as I did against the apartheid government. I am again prepared to go to prison to defend the constitutional rights that I personally fought for and to serve whatever sentence that this democratically elected government deems appropriate as part of the special and different laws for Zuma agenda.”

:rolleyes:

Folks, I hate to say this:
Zuma is NEVER going to jail. Ever. Ramaphosa will go to jail before Zuma doesn't.
this,

quite literally above the law those guys,
courts and laws and all this is a waste of time, he will never go to jail,

just like idi amin that ran away to Saudi, and never had to explain himself before a court for murdering thousands.

same thing here, Western Justice system means little to these clowns.
maybe we should learn from their justice system, where the Chief cant ever be guilty.
