Question marks over Zuma’s testimony: Analyst

Political Analyst Somadoda Fikeni says there are some question marks over former President Jacob Zuma’s testimony before the Zondo Commission into State Capture in Parktown, Johannesburg.

Speaking during his second day of testimony, Zuma distanced himself from a decision to sack Themba Maseko from the Government Communication Information System (GCIS).

Fikeni analysed Zuma’s testimony.

“I think the first one was consistent with the stance of the former president in his public utterances, he said he was not guilty, he couldn’t remember or he never met the person. So much of the evidence presented had been circumstantial in a sense, not very direct. The second one we finally have a glimpse when he says he would reveal some of the secrets as he starts pointing out Ramathlodi and Nyanda, that they were spies who worked for intelligence. What’s bizarre though is that if this is true,  why did they allow him to work on the sensitive side of the Presidency of ANC,” says Fikeni.
