Political analyst Aubrey Matshiqi says courts are beginning to make senior government officials and politicians in government liable for the decisions they make.
This comes after the North Gauteng High Court ordered President Jacob Zuma to appoint a commission of inquiry into state capture on Wednesday.
It should be headed by a judge selected by the Chief Justice within 30 days.
The court dismissed with costs President Zuma’s application. The President wanted the court to review former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s state of capture report’s remedial actions.
It also found that Zuma is implicated in state capture due to his close relations with the Gupta family and cannot oversee a state capture inquiry.
Matshiqi says he is however not convinced that this matter is an example of a malicious litigation on the part of the President and he believes that the President should appeal and it should go to the Constitutional Court.
