Speaking to Times Live, the husband-and-wife duo said Zuma's appearance proves that everyone is equal before the law. Marlen said:

The thing with this place is that everyone is the same. It doesn’t matter who you are - you can be a president and it doesn’t matter; you are the same in this room. If you have done the crime then there is some time waiting for you.
