Vytjie Mentor says Zuma's about-turn on report is no shocker

Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor says it was inevitable that President Jacob Zuma would withdraw his court bid to stop the Public Protector's state capture report.

She says she definitely expected this and is satisfied with what played out in court today.

Mentor, who applied to intervene in the matter as a respondent, says Zuma's interdict was a baseless, unconstitutional waste of taxpayers money.

In March, Mentor alleged that she was offered a conditional Cabinet role by the controversial Gupta family.

She was a part of the group of at least 200 demonstrators marching in Cape Town in solidarity with nationwide protests.

The demonstrators started at St Georges Cathedral, marched on to the NPA's office then ended off with a vigil led by Archbishop Thabo Makgoba.
