President Jacob Zuma must establish a judicial commission of inquiry within 30 days, the High Court in Pretoria has ordered.
A full bench of the court dismissed Zuma’s application to set aside and review the public protector’s remedial action given in the Sate of Capture report.

Political analyst Karima Brown gives her take on the matter.
