Jacob Zuma given deadline to oppose Redi Tlhabi's cross-examination application
The state capture commission of inquiry has given former president Jacob Zuma until Monday next week to file written submissions to oppose the application by journalist Redi Tlhabi to present evidence and cross-examine him.
Zuma told the commission that Tlhabi was one of the individuals who had been trying to defame him, including branding him a rapist.
These statements prompted Tlhabi to submit her application to cross-examine Zuma in July.
