The Radical Economic Transformation (RET) Jacob Zuma support group wants the State Capture Commission to be dissolved and the inquiry’s chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to recuse himself.

Hundreds of people dressed in ANC regalia, led by Carl Niehaus, on Friday, handed over a memorandum of grievances to the Secretariat of the State Capture Commission.

This came as  Zuma was issued with a summons to appear before the Commission next month.

Niehaus claims that Justice Zondo not recusing himself would be an injustice for Zuma.

“In calling for recusal, we simultaneously call for the Commission of Inquiry to be dissolved. Anything less will be a travesty of Justice. With the presentation of this memorandum of demands joins president Zuma in insisting that you must forthwith recuse yourself as the Chairperson of the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.”

Meanwhile, Evidence Leader at the State Capture Commission, Advocate Paul Pretorius has explained why it is necessary for former President Jacob Zuma to appear before Commission.

Pretorius says much of the corruption related to State Capture occurred while Zuma was president and the Commission’s terms of reference require that he must account for what happened.

Justice Raymond Zondo has made concessions for Zuma to appear, given his age, and has ruled that Zuma can appear remotely if he so wishes.
