South Africa's Zuma Refuses To Testify In Zondo Commission

South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma said he would not appear before a commission probing state capture, despite a ruling by the Constitutional Court compelling him to do so.
“The state capture of inquiry can expect no further cooperation from me in any of their processes going forward,” Zuma said in a 6-page statement on Monday. 

 He said his constitutional rights were being violated after the Constitutional Court forced him to testify at the state capture commission. 

“Recently the commission ran to the Constitutional Court on an urgent basis to get the Constitutional Court to compel me to attend at the commission and to compel me to give answers at the commission, effectively undermining a litany of my constitutional rights including the right to the presumption of innocence,” Zuma said.
