Zuma seeks to postpone state capture report hearing
President Jacob Zuma's lawyers have issued a letter saying they need more time to respond to the application filed this week by former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor.
Mentor has made a court application to intervene in the case to stop the release of state capture matter. This case is currently in the Pretoria High Court, following Zuma's interdict application to stop the release the report.
On Tuesday next week the President is meant to appear in court on the matter and Mentor wants to be a respondent in the case and testify.
In his court application for an interdict Zuma said he was not given enough time by the office of Public Protector to respond to allegations and interview witnesses.
Earlier this year Mentor said the members of the Gupta family offered her a job as minister of public enterprises in 2010 in exchange for cancelling South African Airways routes to India.
Mentor was interviewed by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela during her investigation into state capture allegations.
