Former President Jacob Zuma said he had no objection to the law, but he did object to the Zondo Commission of Inquiry.

Zuma was scheduled to appear and testify before the commission on Monday morning but failed to pitch.

He has released a statement through his lawyers on Monday night in response to Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo referring his matter back to the Constitutional Court for action.

Zondo and the commission then decided to approach the Constitutional Court in a bid to find the former president in contempt of court and to request a jail sentence.

Zondo has called for Zuma to be arrested for refusing to appear before the commission.

Zuma said he stood by his decision not to cooperate with the state capture commission as chaired by Zondo.

Zondo and the commission then decided to approach the Constitutional Court in a bid to find the Zuma in contempt of court and to request a jail sentence.

Zondo has since called for Zuma to be arrested for not wanting to appear before

the commission.

Zuma said he stood by his decision not to cooperate with the state capture commission because he doesn’t want to appear in front of Zondo.

The former president’s decision to defy the Constitutional Court and not appear before the state capture commission has been met with shock and criticism.

But Zuma, as he is well known, said he would not budge.

He has accused members of the judiciary of neglecting their duties and instead entering the political arena, without offering evidence.

He said the judges had stripped him of his

constitutional rights and Zondo had judged his children without giving detail.

Jacob Zuma said his protest was against some members of the judiciary who had sold their souls and departed from their oath of office.
