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.

Former president Zuma sure knows how to make an entrance. He knows how to set the tone for the day.

What he sais this morning is that his PA received a call last night and she was given the message that 'they will kill Zuma and his children'. He also revealed that his advocate Sikhakane was also threatened so a dramatic start to the day.

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.
