Zuma Maintains His Innocence And Will Address The Media At 6pm

Former President Jacob Zuma has announced via his JG Zuma Foundation Twitter page that he’ll address the media at 6pm on Sunday evening from the auditorium in Nkandla, not in Durban as previously communicated.

Zuma maintains that he is innocent and that the jail sentence he was handed isn’t right.

On Saturday, he addressed supporters in Nkandla.

Zuma again slammed the formation of the Zondo Commission.

“I don’t know what I’ve done wrong, they never told me. All they did was misinterpret something political I had said.

“They were also just talking politics. But my lawyers said they’d write to them and tell them that this sentence isn’t right,” Zuma told his supporters.

“I don’t know where that will end. It will get difficult if they make me serve jail time when I’ve done nothing wrong.”

“Can you imagine seeing me go there?

“This shows me that those handling the law, maybe even the country’s leaders, don’t understand what it means to govern.

“You don’t abuse the powers given to you because this can cause major destruction in the country.”

The former president said when the Zondo Commission was being established, he said it would end in tears

“Because they’re doing something that’s not right. No country has ever investigated its own government,” Zuma said.

“If you do that, it means you don’t understand what it means to govern.”

The Constitutional Court agreed to hear his application against its contempt judgment and sentencing.
