Zuma Faces Charges Over South African Graft Commission Walkout

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has requested that Jacob Zuma face criminal charges after the former president walked out during the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture after Zondo ruled against his recusal application. Zondo has taken multiple legal avenues to secure Zuma's testimony, including issuing a new summons and a Constitutional Court order to force him to face the Commission. This comes after Zuma not only called on Zondo to recuse himself from the Commission but also but also questioned the constitutionality of the legal body. The Zondo Commission was established to probe allegations of state capture among companies, individuals, and high-ranking government officials.
