Retired judge Zak Yacoob says President Jacob Zuma is likely to appeal the State Capture judgment at the last minute and suggests this will buy him time and delay proceedings.
On Wednesday, the High Court in Pretoria ruled that none of the President's grounds to review the Public Protector's State of Capture report have any merit and cannot succeed.
Judge President Dunstan Mlambo ruled that the remedial action proposed by the Public Protector in the State of Capture report is lawful, appropriate, reasonable and rational.
Of course he will appeal and then he will lose the appeal, and then work it out and use our money to do the appeal, depends, the ANC might stop him.— Zak Yacoob, retired judge
There is a problem because it takes time, it's December now, the judges do go on holiday sometimes and therefore he will make an application for leave to appeal in the last possible minute and then the Supreme Court of Appeal will hear it next month and then he has got his time. That is the problem with the legal system which is inevitable that you can't get things done today.— Zak Yacoob, retired judge
Yacoob says Zuma and the African National Congress has done a lot of harm to the country.
I think that the legal system has done a lot more than it should have done for the country at the moment because a political system is not working for us.— Zak Yacoob, retired judge
