South Africa’s scandal-hit president Jacob Zuma has dismissed as “unfair” an anti-corruption watchdog’s report which suggested that he may have breached his oath of office.
The report, released last month, focused on allegations that Mr Zuma let a wealthy family of business people, the Guptas, wield undue influence in his government.
Mr Zuma addressing the parliament had given the clearest indication that he intended to challenge the report in court,
The report suggested that Mr Zuma should set up a commission of inquiry to thoroughly investigate corruption allegations against him, businessmen, government ministers and officials.
However, the chief judge should appoint the judge who will head the inquiry, the report said.
Mr Zuma rejected the proposal, saying he would not be “told the process through which you must go” to establish a commission of inquiry.Please subscribe to our newsletter
