Zuma's time has come – senior counsel

Publish date: 04 April 2016
Issue Number: 3962
Diary: Legalbrief Today
Category: General

A qualified apology from President Jacob Zuma and an unequivocal refusal to apologise from Speaker Baleka Mbete, who will chair tomorrow’s Zuma impeachment debate in the National Assembly, were how the duo at the centre of the Nkandla saga dealt with last week’s landmark judgment that found both Zuma and the National Assembly had breached the Constitution in dealing with Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s report on the profligate public spending to the President’s private homestead, notes Legalbrief. Neither has resigned and both, it seems, intend to soldier on in the face of growing political opposition, and, in Zuma’s case, strong legal opinion that his time has come.
