Zuma says his family received death threats after Zondo testimony
The state capture commission got going on Tuesday with yet another revelation by former president Jacob Zuma.
Zuma has told the commission that his life and that of his family were threatened after his testimony on Monday.
Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo said the alleged threats on Zuma’s life and that of his counsel were unacceptable.
Clement Manyathela speaks to News24 journalist Pieter du Toit on the proceedings of the inquiry.

Today again was about casting himself as the victim as he did in the past. He did so in the Schaik trial, the rape trial. Jacob Zuma is always the victim and target of some conspiracy or plot.Pieter du Toit, Journalist - News24
