Presidency says Zuma will read state capture report and decide on recourse
President Jacob Zuma plans to read the Public Protector's state capture report and then decide on a a way forward.
Presidency spokesperson Dr Bongani Ngqulunga advises that Zuma will consider whether he will pursue legal recourse, as is his right.
If the President is not happy with what the report says, he has the right to judicial review and he will take that decisions once he has read it.Dr Bongani Ngqulunga, Presidency spokesperson
Ngqulunga says that Zuma was never against the report's release, insisting that he just wanted a fair chance to give input.
He knows the questions that had been asked but was not given an adequate opportunity to answer. If he had an opportunity to answer those questions perhaps the report that is out would have been different.Dr Bongani Ngqulunga, Presidency spokesperson
Ngqulunga explains that Zuma wanted an opportunity to make his representations and answer questions in the report led by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, involving him.
Ngqulunga unpacked how the controversy around the state capture report unfolded.
Issues about Madonsela's correspondence, the complaints received, investigation process, and the finality of the report are among the issues discussed by Ngqulunga and 702 presenter Xolani Gwala.
