State capture commission wants Zuma jailed

South Africa

Johannesburg – The State Capture Commission of Inquiry is to lay contempt charges against former President Jacob Zuma in the Constitutional Court.

The commission wants the former president jailed for two years and wants Police Minister Bheki Cele and National Police Commissioner Khehla Sithole to make the arrest.

Zuma disobeyed a summons to appear before the commission last week.

In November, he left the commission without notifying the chairperson of the commission.

This prompted chairperson of the inquiry Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to head to the Constitutional Court and order Zuma’s return.

The commission also says Zuma did not submit affidavits regarding Prasa and Eskom, despite being ordered to do so.
