South Africa former president, Jacob Zuma keeps enjoying the support from several formations, with a radical economic transformation (RET) group in the Free State the latest to back him on Wednesday.
Zuma continued to defy the Constitutional Court’s ruling which ordered him to honour the summons issued by the commission of inquiry into state capture. The commission said he should appear before it between Monday and Friday this week.
The former president has stood true to his word and refused to appear before the commission.
During the weekend, an RET group in KwaZulu-Natal travelled to Zuma’s Nkandla homestead where they have remained in support of him.
The group’s leader, Nkosentsha Shezi, vowed to defend Zuma “against all hostilities” and “witchcraft” at his Nkandla homestead starting from Sunday ahead of Zuma’s expected appearance before the commission.
An RET organisation in the Free State has also given its backing to the former president.
And also, Malefu Mofokeng, the coordinator and spokesperson for the Free State RET Forces, said it was their constitutional right to challenge decisions made by party leaders.
