Zuma summons likely to face legal challenges - Karyn Maughan
The State Capture inquiry is set to resume on Tuesday with a summons expected to be issued to former president Jacob Zuma to appear before the commission between January 27 and 31.
Zuma failed to appear in November last year when his lawyers said he is ill and would not make it.
Business Day journalist Karyn Maughan says any opposition to the summons may lead to a legal challenge.
This is quite an extraordinary situation because up until now we haven't seen the commission summonsing a witness to appear before them, that of course leaves them open to potential opposition from former president Zuma's lawyers.Karyn Maughan, Journalist - Business Day
If a summons is issued, then the door is open for legal challenges to that summons which may drag on for years.Karyn Maughan, Journalist - Business Day
We know they [Zuma's legal team] will be appearing before the commission tomorrow to articulate their client's response. He has always maintained he is happy to appear but has been unable to do so because of alleged health issues in the past few months.Karyn Maughan, Journalist - Business Day
