Johannesburg - Former president Jacob Zuma has lost his application to appeal a personal cost order issued by the Gauteng High Court in his failed application to review the remedial action in the state of capture report. The court issued a notice of its decision on Friday. Zuma wanted the court to overturn the ruling it issued in December 2017 that he should be held personally liable for his decision to appeal the remedial action contained in former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's state of capture report.

Following that ruling, the former president applied to appeal the cost order. The court's damning judgement said Zuma was ill-advised when he decided that he would challenge the report which recommended that he, as president at the time, should appoint an inquiry to investigate the state capture allegations.

ANC doesn't know how money works !
Oh they know very well, money is something you get for free from other people to enrich yourself or pay your bills.

Someone, somehow, somewhere will end up paying Zuma's bills, but it sure as shyte won't be him, count on it.

There should still be plenty Gupta money to go round. Unfortunately for Zuma VBS is closed for business.

Three months after leaving the highest office in the country, former president Jacob Zuma is said not to have the money to keep fighting his prosecution for fraud, corruption, money laundering and racketeering.

His lawyer, Michael Hulley, said on Tuesday that Zuma had terminated counsel’s brief. He said this was because of “the Presidency’s attitude” towards the application brought by the DA and uncertainty about whether the state would continue to fund his legal case.

“Until this question is determined by the courts, Mr Zuma simply does not have the means to engage with the court processes regarding his prosecution,” said Hulley.
So this genius doesn't have money to fight cases, but carries on fighting and now has additional costs and an obligation to pay R10 million personally.

How tf can he afford an appeal !
