Axed president, Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane, feels biased after Mcebisi Jonas applied for a reschedule to his cross-examination.

Raymond Zondo, the deputy Chief Justice, gave Jonas permission on Tuesday to adjourn the former deputy finance minister’s appearance to 26 November.

According to reports, Jonas told Zondo in his application that he was overseas, as part of President Cyril Ramaphosa's investors' envoy. Jonas indicated he would only be back in South Africa at the end of November.
