Zuma asks court to block anti-graft report

By on October 14, 2016

South African President Jacob Zuma has asked a court to stop the release of results of an anti-corruption investigation over allegations of political interference by his wealthy friends, his spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela questioned Zuma for four hours last week as part of her final investigation before her seven-year term comes to an end on Saturday.

In a statement late Thursday, graft watchdog spokeswoman Kgalalelo Masibi said Madonsela would release her last batch of investigation reports on Friday and provide updates on the progress of other investigations. But she did not state whether the report on the Guptas would be among them.

The main opposition Democratic Alliance party said in a statement that Zuma was “worried about what is contained in this report, and desperate to stop it from being made public”.
