A group operating under the banner ‘RET Defenders’ (Radical Economic Transformation) has called upon the ANC as well as President Cyril Ramaphosa to lend a helping hand to former president Jacob Zuma.

Jacob Zuma has been ordered by a Pretoria High Court to personally pay his legal fees for criminal cases against him.

The RET Defenders have said that whilst they have yet to establish a trust in the former president's name, they are encouraging individuals as well as organisations to contribute.
