Zondo Commission – Zuma – 2021

Section 2 of the Constitution, headed Supremacy of the Constitutiondeclares that “this Constitution is the supreme law of the Republic; law or conduct inconsistent with it is invalid, and the obligations imposed by it must be fulfilled”.   When Zuma was twice sworn in as president, he took an oath that he would “be faithful to the Republic of South Africa, and will obey, observe, uphold and maintain the Constitution and all other laws of the Republic.”

Zuma threatens to defy the Constitution he twice swore...

*

Die Grondwet van Suid-Afrika, verklaar dat die hoogste wet van die Republiek is; wetgewing of gedrag wat nie daarmee ooreenstem nie, is ongeldig of ongrondwetlik.   Die verpligtinge wat daaraan opgelê word, moet nagekom word veral deur die president van die land. Toe Zuma twee keer as president ingesweer is, het hy ‘n eed afgelê dat hy ‘getrou sou wees aan die Republiek van Suid-Afrika en die Grondwet en alle ander wette van die Republiek sal gehoorsaam, nakom, handhaaf en handhaaf’. As voormalige president moet hy die eerste wees wat respek toon vir die Grondwet waarvoor hy en sy organisasie geveg het en help skryf het; vir die konstitusionele hof, waarvan hy die meeste lede tans aangestel het en vir die Zondo-kommissie wat hy gestig het. In plaas daarvan het hy openlik en in die openbaar verklaar dat hy die Grondwet, die Hof en die Kommissie sal trotseer.

As a former president he should be the first to show respect for the Constitution that he and his organisation fought for and helped to write; for the Constitutional Court, most of whose current members he appointed and for the Zondo Commission, which he established. Instead, he has openly and publicly declared that he will defy the Constitution, the Court and the Commission.

While Zuma was the president of South Africa various corruption took place and even before his time – like the arms deals.  He  was in charge of the whole of South Africa, the master mind and architect of state capture, but he was not alone in all those schemes.     It it important that Zondo Commossion focus on him as a start and it makes sense to go after him.     The other “assistants” will get their sentences and follow him.   The  Zondo commission have to find all the corruption money back, with those involved, they mut pay back, with interest and those that received the payments, must pay their Tax on it as well, received as an extra income.

On 22 February 2021, it was stated that the former president failed to appear at the state capture commission last week despite a summons and an order by the highest court to do so.      The state capture commission has asked that former president Jacob Zuma be committed to two years in prison for contempt of court.

The State Capture Commission of Inquiry has filed an urgent application at the Constitutional Court calling for former President Jacob Zuma to be arrested for two years.​ Last week, the former president was a no-show at the commission, defying a constitutional Court ruling that compelled him to appear before Zondo from the 15th to 19th of February. In the application, the commission’s secretary described this case as no ordinary one given the position that Zuma holds in society. The commission further wants Police Minister Bheki Cele and National Police Commissioner General Khehla Sithole to be ordered to take all steps, as may be required to give effect to the order and demands that Zuma is ordered to pay the costs of the contempt application. Last week Zuma wrote a 12-page scathing statement, claiming that some judges have sold their souls and departed from their oath of office.​ Karyn Maughan, News 24 Senior Legal Journalist gives more details.
